Lookin’ For Bargains

There was a brocante near the Pere Lachaise cemetery so a friend and I took a look after a good Thai meal in a nearby cafe. The brocante was a really good one with lots of variety and reasonable prices.


I liked these froggy planters but I really don’t have a place to put them-plus, I will be moving soon. Do I really want two more things to pack?

I loved these leather books. They look so rich. There was even one in French on Churchill.


There are almost always picture frames for sale. I find it hard to buy a frame and then find something that will fit inside.

  1. I’ve seen people hang empty picture frames in interesting patterns on the wall. But then, people may just think you got mad at the person whose picture was there and took it down.

  2. I have a friend who bought some old frames, painted them funky colours and hung them empty, smaller ones inside bigger ones, on the wall. Sounds strange but it actually looked really cool.

  3. How’s the Thai food in Paris. We were looking for a good Thai place when we were there, but the only ones we could find seemed kind of sketchy

  4. Linda, thanks for stopping by to read about my amazing African safari trip – it really was the most amazing time of my life! I’ll be posting lots more stories and pics – I took so many! Hoping to return in 2012 – but need to win the lottery to be able to afford it, ha! ha!

    I sometimes buy an old frame I love and then place it around another framed picture for a different look. Oh to be in Paris at the brocante – happy weekend dear.

    Hugs – Mary

  5. More great photos – and good thinking about the upcoming move and not accumulating more STUFF (I’m in the same boat and sometimes it’s hard to resist, esp. when so cute as those frogs!).

    Cheers from across town (I think) and hope to meet in person next time 🙂

  6. I’ve been absent from the blog-o-sphere lately but such a delight to come for a visit and find this post! I just LOVE those leather bound books, and I admire your will power not to have brought them home with you. And before a move the last thing you want is more books, they are so very heavy!

  7. I would recommend – Goa . it depends on what you want to do. If you have a time and could afford to go for 15-20 days, I would say do Darjeeling, simla, kulu and the whole tour package
