Paris Brocantes


Thought I'd show you some of the things for sale at the Paris fleas and brocantes.  Mid-century modern was evident, but other than that, much like what you'd see at the big shows in USA.  I did come home with some things I'll post later.  The ghastly industrial lighting trend was also big; I think it must have started in Hollywood; I don't get it. I always look at toys.  Look and enjoy and I'll post more later.

  2. Donna - aren't those toys fabulous? That little pink sink and stove remind me of something that I owned when I was a child many years ago...hmmm wonder what ever happened to it. Great stuff - now I hope to see what you brought home with you. Take care and have a lovely day.

    1. Debbie, I had a little stove/sink that had water that ran through it. I loved that little kitchenette so much; played for hours on end with it.
