Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

fossicking around in the flea market ......

If you love foraging around in flea markets
you would love this wonderful old place
known to the French as " Les Puces de St-Ouen"
It was featured in the film "Midnight in Paris"
and I SO loved my visit there

a wealth of bric-a-brac
objet d'art - paintings framed in gorgeous
gold antique surrounds - old books - letters - buttons
The stall holders were more than happy
to let me photograph their wares
which of course  - made my day !!

So many pretty things. That flea market gets the creme de la creme.

I love your angles. It does look like a fabulous place to wander around. Thanks for sharing.
I have a new Dreaming of France post up if you want to play along. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

P.S. - I'd never heard the word fossicking, so I looked it up and I guess it's an Australian/New Zealand word

Looks like a few gems there.

A fun tour - I too, had not known the word, fossicking. Learned something new today!

Bonjour chère amie,

Un très joli billet. J'ai beaucoup aimé me rendre un jour aux Puces de Saint-Ouen. J'y avais même fait l'acquisition d'un magnifique cheval de manège qui trône dans mon entrée...

Merci pour ce délicieux partage.

Gros bisous 🌺

Les Puces is so fun to walk around and see what you may find.
