The family and I spent a nice weekend in the country outside of Paris. Our visit coincided with the towns summer celebration. The weekend was chock full of swimming, a fair, a parade, fireworks, and a city wide yard sale. Paris has big flea markets but nothing like a good old yardsale. The items were a pretty crazy ix of modern junk and antique treasures, one thing that stood out to me was the fact that the French like to sale fancy antique plates and serving ware. I lucked out and found this amazing Carhartt jacket and a pair of pristine chuck taylors for 5 euros each.
