While on vacation, one of the best days we had was strolling through one of Paris' many flea markets. We actually went to two, but we both fell in love with Le marché aux Puces de Vanves. Sadly we woke up a little late that day, and didn't get to scrounge as much as we usually like to, but we had just enough time to visit every table and pick up a few things while we were at it.
The variety at this flea market was incredible and we saw so many unique and wonderful things. Unlike some of Paris' other flea markets, this one had all vintage and antique items. I really had my heart set on buying an oil painting that I could bring home and admire and remember the time we went to marche aux puces, but between the lack of time and limited suite case space, we settled for a few smaller items.
We both have a soft spot for vintage ads. Be it their colour, their puns, or just their kitschy charm, we are happy to display them in our home, especially in our kitchen. So to add to our collection we picked up a few small french food ads. The perfect souvenir from our Sunday stroll in Paris. Light as a feather, and while not quite an oil painting, they are works of art that I will admire and remember the time we went to the marche aux puces!
