Friday French Favourites

A whole week between posts again! Oh well, c'est la vie!

Friday French Favourites for this week is the Paris Flea Market. What a place! Let me tell you, it did not disappoint in the slightest. In fact the only problem I had with it was that we didn't have enough time to see it all, and we stayed about 5 or 6 hours! I had been told that it was a in a bit of a dodgy part of town so I got panicky and didn't take my DSLR which I was later kicking myself for. On the outskirts of the flea market they have stalls of knock-offs etc that probably had a bit of a dodgy element about it, but the actual vintage and antiques sections were not like that in the slightest. So the only photos I have are the ones I took with Mums point and shoot.

I didn't buy much there either, the prices, oh the prices! I think they spot the tourist a mile away and then add extra zeros or something! Anyway, we did come away with a few little pieces that will always remind us of that most fabulous of places, The Paris Flea Market.

I was trying to think of the guide's name at Tournon, was it Sidonie?

Oh, I think these ones will just get petted for a while! I just don't think I could ever use them!
