More Parisian Brocantes

I found this sign lying on the street behind a tent at a neighborhood brocante in Paris.  It was fairly big, heavy, but I thought it would fit into the large hard-sided luggage I brought.  I asked the lady of the tent if it was for sale and she told me, 75euros.  I didn't blink and it now hangs in my kitchen, and, it didn't fit, so I had to bend the trefoil edges to get it in my luggage which security went through at the airport to see what the heck was in there.

I loved this mirrored bird sconce - there were two.

Bought some of these cute wooden animals.

Loved this big ape and would have brought him home on my lap, but it was not to be.

This would have come home with me if it were 200 euros instead of 2000 euros.

I had planned to look at old wall coverings and papers, but didn't know what to do with them and didn't want to try and bring them home.
