Partager Paris Brocantes de Printemps

The sun is finally staying out in Paris, and everyone feels the urge to clean out their greniers ... and make a bit of money while they are at it!   I am an avid visitor at these affairs, looking for that perfect treasure.  
Scanning all the tables for small oil paintings, rounds of lace, old buttons, limoges perfume bottles, a Lustre for the salon, dinner knives from the 1930s .. actually anything from the 30’s, Moroccan book ends, old cooking books, netsukes ... the list goes on ...  

Today’s treasure from my afternoon at the brocante in the 14th arrondisement was a beautiful vase from the 1930s ... a real success!
If you don’t have time to go all the way to the famous Marché aux Puces St-Ouen de Clignancourt, take a look at what is going on in central Paris:

Ce sont les petites réussites de chaque jour qui fabriquent le bonheur !
