Paris Fleamarket

Remember my trip to Paris?
I promised to share pics from the fab flea market we visited at Porte de Vanves.

Hopefully this is a case of better late than never :O) 

The market even has it’s very own blog here.

I love that the French are so ‘crafty’. 
There were so many vintage sewing supplies on the market.  Such a shame I was flying with Ryanair … certainly not an airline that encourages shopping !

I so wanted this pram!  Can you imagine arriving at the airport with it :O)

It was a rotten rainy day but the market was fab and made up for it.  I was oooohing and ahhhhhhing every five minutes :O)

I can’t complain too much about Ryanair though as I managed to bring home these lovelies.

I can’t wait to try out the easter egg moulds.  

The security guys were a little shocked at the airport when they seen them and did say that they could be used as a weapon as they are so heavy but I managed to explain what they were for and they let me through – phew!

I so recommend a trip to this market if you’re in Paris.  It’s fabulous.  And there’s a lovely patisserie between the market and tram stop – perfect for a pre and post shopping coffee and pastry ;o)
