The Parisians know how to flea...





...as in "market" that is. I was so in awe of the most famous flea market in Paris called Porte de Clignancourt, officially called Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, but known to everyone as Les Puces (The Fleas). Not only were the finds over the top "incroyable" but the culture, attitude (with the slight exception of a few unkind French hagglers) and scenery were all worth the trip. I fell in love with some of the children and infant collectibles/toys/clothing. Even the tiny temporary store fronts were stunning. From the ivy covered entry of one vendor to the antique toy metal airplane, lace baby stroller and (who'd a tought) a rattan woven motorcyle my feat took a beating but it was worth it. Do you think I got carried away with my obsession of wheeled objects?!? I am very excited to add some of my finds to the Petrie Pint Designs collection. Stay tuned!
