As Alex has said, we've just come back from our bi-annual show in Paris Premiere Classe, which is where we show our new collections to International buyers. This time we received orders from stores across Japan, and also gained new stockists in Taiwan, Bucharest,  Milan, Paris and Monaco - very exciting!

Carousel

So perfectly French!

 

 

 

The show takes place within the Jardins Tuileries, right in the centre of Paris - it's a long day, 9am - 7pm but when you do get chance to take a breather you can see some pretty sites!

 

 

 

The show was fun, but I have to say, it was hard work! So it was very nice to have a bit of time off....Sunday's are lovely and peaceful in Paris, as pretty much everything is shut, but it's a great time to go to markets....

It was a bit of a cold and wet morning, but I couldn't wait to check out some of the Flea Markets or 'Brocante'....I heard that 'Marche aux Puces de Vanves' is one of the best, so I headed to Porte de Vanves Metro. The market starts where Ave. Georges Lafenestre meets Ave. Marc- Sangrier.  There was lots to see, but I bought some great religious charms for €5 each.

 

After all of that, it was time to warm up with a coffee and a slice of tarte tatin, and after heading to Le Marais (the only shopping area open on a Sunday) I found a really sweet little cafe called 'Comme a la Maison'. It's in Village Saint-Paul, a little courtyard, and is like stepping into someone's kitchen - there were only about 3 tables!

Le Marais is full of lovely little boutique-y stores, my favourite was the Corpus Christi jewellery shop which was tiny and felt like a treasure trove. This can be found at 64 Rue Vieille du Temple.

Also worth checking out is 'Vintage Desire' - 32 Rue des Rosiers. Another Aladdin's Cave, where you can find t-shirts, hats and blouses for €5, and dresses for €10 - well worth a rumage! 

 

 

 

 

 

And after all of that, I suggest a visit to L'As du Fallafel for a pitta bread bursting with falafel, humous, salad, roasted aubergine and chilli sauce.  Almost next door at number 34 - people seem to travel across Paris for these delights - check out the queues!

After a day of wondering, I went back to the show to see how Alex had got on - and he had been rushed off his feet! Monday was another busy day, then we had to pack everything up and head back across Paris to the Gare du Nord......it was all a bit of a whirlwind really!
