création à Paris

13 Nov

It’s a chilly but partly-sunny Sunday in Paris….my boyfriend is out of town, stores are closed….what am I going to do?!

As you know, I LOVE local markets.  And there was one that I had seen signs for, but never visited, so I biked over to the nearby Marché de la Création, near Gare Montparnasse in Paris’ 14th arrondissement.  The market is open every Sunday – good to know if you’re looking for something to do on a quiet Sunday.  And a good place to buy handcrafted Parisian goods at affordable prices.

This is just a sampling of what I found:

I hopped on a Velib'...

...and 10 minutes later I was at the marché de la Création.

There were dancing horse statues.

A million hats to choose from.

Very cool art deco-style handmade stained glass panels.

Vibrant scarves.

More animal statues (this time closer to life-sized).

Some 'big' jewelry (sorry it's blurry!).

And plenty of paintings - these two are MY FAVES!!!

Next time you find yourself in Paris on a Sunday, swing by and check it out!

À bientôt,
