flea market finds



Our first full day in Paris we ventured to the flea market.  Oh my gosh.  It was quite the place.  When we first got there all we could find was junk.  Gangster clothing and cheap stuff.  Not what I was looking for.  With much persistence and an extremely patient husband I finally found some cool stuff.  Ephemera, beads and lace!  What could be better?  Well, quite frankly the prices.  It was quite pricey really.
Honestly the supplies that I find here in thrift stores are just as good and a LOT cheaper.  I can always find a bargain here at home.  I hope that doesn't sound like complaining.  I mean to sound extremely grateful for my beautiful life here in Canada.  I am truly blessed beyond measure!  I am also grateful for such a wonderful trip and the chance to shop for some treasures.
