Subject: Marche aux Puces
Hi Sally, I would agree with Mark about this flea market. A couple of years ago when I went to Paris I read an article out of the Globe and Mail at the last minute and decided to go. While it was not the biggest I have ever been to you enjoy yourself as it was less crowded. I ended up buying some silvered ashtrays that the seller claimed were from Napoleon III's house. You might say I bought them for as much the story as for the ashtrays and use them for wine coasters :-) I also enjoyed talking with the locals and I will go back the next time I am in Paris. Another thought is to grab a chair in the Jardin de Luxemburg or any other garden for that matter and just people watch. I always take a paper but never get a chance to read it (provided the weather co-operates)
