Open-air attic addiction
Ever wondered how many precious mornings you’ve lost, lazing around in bed on weekends? Okay we love it too. But we’ve found a real good reason to drag ourselves out of the sack. Very very early.
The Vanves flea market.
Of course you can expect to find a whole collection of treasures: fifties magazines, a unique set of dishes, retro jewelry and accessories, etc…
But the main attraction is the ambiance. Young Japanese girls with tight bangs mix with in-the-know bobos and classic Paris moms. All of them engaged in lively discussions with grubby, smoke-puffing dealers, haggling over dusty old Eames look-alikes.
Suddenly it’s noontime, and everyone packs up and takes off to the melody of a creaky piano somewhere. You could go on with your day wearing your sharp, newly acquired vintage Ray Bans. Or head back to bed. Your choice.
