    Absolutely…this would be awesome!

  5. I have had the chance to shop at the Paris flea market. I treasure my vintage postcards and ephemera.
    The lovlies pictured here are just the type of French flair that tugs at my heart strings and makes me long for another opportunity to return and savor those very special moments when I can step into shoes of long ago and transport myself.

  6. Shopping in the Paris Flea Market has been my dream for uncounted years. I particularly want to search out paper ephemera like invoices, letters, Le Figaro magazines, postcards, tradecards, calligraphy and/or typeface examples, old fabrics of muslin weave, and linens for tables and napkins.

  7. Yes, Je t’adore France! If I were to shop in the flea markets of france, I’d buy a handmade market bag, fabrics and papers and even vintage clothing. I’d love to go; and it’s my goal to take my entire family to France, Switzerland {my forefather’s country} and Italy for the vineyards. I must see Paris, but I could spend the majority of time seeking out country towns. Salut! Renee
