Paris Flea Markets.........SWEET

I knew the Paris Flea Markets would be sweet...........................


Just didn't realize how totally sweet!





As soon as I started to focus my camera on this beautiful shop with ivy, this lady came out and stood for the picture.











Can you believe all this?!?!












My dream job would be a decorator that shops the Paris fleas to find the perfect treasures to display and use.






The first market we went to was Clignancourt, which is on the north side of Paris. Luckily the subway got us there just fine.

.....no getting lost on this day!

There is all kinds of stuff there and thank goodness it didn't take us long to find the vintage/antique stuff. OMG..........this is such amazing stuff

........the most amazing stuff you've ever seen!
The other flea market we went to was Porte de Vanves. I highly recommend this one too. Very friendly vendors and lots of nice items.

The Marche aux Puces is a definite on any Paris itinerary.
