Sunday in Paris
Sunday is not easy in Paris. The key is going out to the flea market. We went out there around 11 and had a bite at Cocottes.
They were preparing for lunch later with these chicken rotisseries. I have never seen chickens out like this just twirling in front of the heat.
The restaurant has an amazing metal circular stair going down to this bathroom.
Here are some highlights of what we saw. Furry couch.
A tiny shop completely devoted to an office.
Red glass sconces.
Thought a lot about these three pieces but in the end we passed.
This ship has four shot glasses in it and a bottle for scotch.
Nice speaker in one store.
Now this is a great couch for lounging.
I do have a thing for taxidermy.
Old footballs and medicine balls.
Old wine and vegetable boxes.
This space is super cool. There is this one area that has high end curated shops including the restaurant Buvette.
Lunch was at Paul Bert. Packed with families. Nicoise salad.
We ended the week with our friends at Semilla, second time back. This lamb shoulder was for two. Special that day. Over the top.
Dessert was a deconstructed eclair.
Walking was needed and we headed down to the Seine. The lock situation on the bridges is ridiculous. Not sure when it amplified but I believe about 5 years ago.
I love that they are trying to educate everyone to love without locks.
Back for bed. Our friends leave tomorrow morning and we head out Tuesday.
I have loved all of the photos, Joanne. Especially the ones of the food!! Thank you for sharing your trip with everyone!
Have you ever attended the NY International Gift Fair?http://www.nynow.com/When I was a kid my Dad was an exhibitor  (my uncle still is). It’s not for consumers, only businesses but obviously you can get in if you want.Very cool and full of things visually interesting. As kids we used to wander around at the end of the show and pickup whatever we could that the exhibitors threw out. I think you’d really like attending this show. Back then it was called The NY Gift Show and was at the Coliseum https://en.wikipedia.org/wi…
years ago. it was great
