Back to work today after a fantastic weekend in Paris. If you’re planning a visit, I strongly recommend including the Marché aux Puces St-Ouen de Clignancourt, an awe-inspiring flea/antique market in Paris (take the Métro to Porte de Clignancourt on Line 4). As a collection of smaller markets, this vast antiques market seemed to sell just about anything you could think of. I did make a little purchase which was a real gem of a find and which I’ll be writing about in my July newsletter.
Stop by the Boulangerie Du Pain et des Idées first (take the metro to Jacques Bonsergent) and stock up on some of their gorgeous, award-winning apple turnovers to help you through the day. (Of course, don’t forget to wash sticky hands before handling the antique books and paintings!)
If you can still walk beneath the weight of all your bargains, end the day with a walk along the Seine. Perfect.
