Marché d'Aligre - XVIII



Marché d'Aligre


The street markets of Paris are many, each with its own flavor.


You never know when you will find a porte-bonheur (lucky charm), 
a  cherished memory that will long remind you of Paris.

I'll take the cut-glass bowl and those gorgeous glass candle-holders. My sort of market Genie!

We are always so pleased to stumble across a market such as this on our travels particularly when overseas. The trash and treasure on the table often tells such a story about the history of a city.

love flea markets, like they say,
one man's trash is another man's treasure.

A definite MUST for the next trip across the pond! Alas, our one day at Vanves last fall was cold, rainy, dreary--not the best day for such an outing, even for the sellers. By mid-morning they were beginning to throw the tarps over what I'm sure was some good stuff. But we did find a few goodies before that happened. :-)

Street markets, both food and second hand, are what I am looking forward to about living like a local in France.

I'm offering another giveaway and would love for you to let me know of more hidden gems and special places that are often overlooked.

J'ai pratiqué pas mal de brocantes à Paris, en visiteuse.

J'étais une très bonne cliente de ce genre d'événements, aussi bien en Suisse que lors de mes déplacements à l'étranger. Au japon j'ai trouvé des perles de verre pour mes colliers.
Ce que je recherchais surtout, était les objets pour illustrer les propos dans mes vitrines à thèmes, réalisées pour les pharmacies.

Maintenant, c'est moi qui vend ! je revends certains objets des vitrines que je n'utiliserais plus. Celles-ci ayant fait le tour de mes clients.
Je dois dire que j'y prends goût ! C'est très rigolo de vendre parfois des trucs que vous penseriez *invendables ... comme un serpent empaillé qu'un ami m'avait donné pour la vitrine sur le caducée et la mythologie du serpent en général. Là, il y a beaucoup de choses à découvrir.

L'argent n'est pas dépensé, mais gardé en prévision de prochains voyages. Il faut que je me dépêche... à 75 ans !!!
