I just entered a link to one of my favorite places in Hamburg…. The problem with the first one was that I forgot that you don’t have ä, ü and ö…. So I posted a second one and now it works… but I don’t know how to delete the first one…

I’m sorry for that… But we are just online for three days now and there are so many things we have to learn :-)

Katharina

My grandma and I used to go to a second hand store for treasure shopping a lot when I was younger. Lovely post series.

I’ve been meaning to go to the BIG ONE in Lille – 2000 stall holders for 2 days – maybe this year…

I love them too! Around here (Oise area) they are pretty awesome as well. Today I started a column where I portray the people from my region, because I love discovering more about my community!

This is my first time participating. I’ve been trying to get out and enjoy Scotland more and more. We’ve lived here for just over 4 yrs and we were starting to feel complacent about life abroad. These last few weeks have brought a breath of fresh air to us. We love being expat’s and sometimes we just need to be reminded we have this amazing opportunity.

And I love the tradition (and the deliciousness) of the Galette du Roi. You and your family are learning so much about la vie francaise. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us!

I think I would have bought the entire bin of feves! Right this moment, I can’t think of anything more fun than strolling through a French town snapping up vintage finds at bargain prices AND having a picnic table to nibble on snacks! Swoon…thanks for taking me along this morning :)

Or break a tooth on one? I’ve always wondered that. I love the whole tradition of the King Cake though. And that little Eiffel Tower is so sweet.

Unfortunately it rained heavily the whole day so it was not as busy as it normally would be and I felt sorry for the people who stood there all day. However I had a quick stroll around with my youngest in the buggy and was lucky to find a nice piece of furniture – among many not so interesting things it really stood out! It’s kind of a cupboard with a display cabinet on top. I’m quite happy with it and I just need to find the right place for it in our appartment… I love fleamarkets but it’s hard to find good ones I find and often you have to be an early riser as they start really early in the morning which is definitely not my thing…

I really enjoy reading your blog and I’m happy you extended your stay in France as we have a similar experience here in Belgium (I’m German and my husband is Irish) and our local area is rather French than Belgian.

My six year old daughter bought a few of these as souvenirs in Paris this past spring. I thought they were a bargain at 50 Euro cents a piece. Sounds like a little farther afield the price drops off to a real bargain. Unfortunately all three were lost at the playground later that afternoon. :-(
