Museum meets brocante
Aug 2015 • Friends
On the way to Honfleur, my driver friend just wanted to show this scenic village to me and stopped here, then I discovered this awesome shop!!
This shop is filled with optical toys, some of them are brocante, some of them are created in-a-style-of antiques by the owner, Monsieur Stora, as well as charming antiques books, and curious objects.
Especially I was drawn to his kaleidoscopes. Normally strip of mirrors in a tube are set in an equilateral triangle, so the vision spread endlessly... it's OK. But his version, are made with mirrors set in an isosceles triangle. makes the view like looking into a microscope, and the vision is made into 5 pointed star (or flower) shape. This effect enhances the charm of kaleidoscope vision a lot (in my opinion ; )).
I bought a grey scale one which gives me endless fascinating time. (collage image uploaded)
If someone likes "Cabinet of curiosity" and/or "Joseph Cornell", this is the must-visit shop in Bass-Normandie. Highly recommend!!
