I am not living in Paris, as a lot of followers seems to think... I am just there often as it is just at 3 hours by train from home ! I appreciate it only because it is not my everyday life.. What I love by "living" in a city even for some days is to LIVE it... working from different places, looking for different inspiration... This city is so inspiring ! Will be back home soon.

 

Yesterday I went to the Cité Architecture & Patrimoine to see the superb exhibition "Revoir Paris" about the city today and tomorrow by François Schuiten et Benoît Peeters; and had the nice surprise to discover the other one about Viollet-Le-Duc - Architect's visions ! Fascinating !

I am back home after a week in Paris, and I want to share with you my favorits shops and places in the 10th arrondissement, my favorit distric of the city. It is full of creative shops and concept stores in each street, passionate people that just want to create their life ! Just as the cowrkshop I share about some days ago... WARNING : it is summer time in Paris, which means Parisians are living the city, this is good, but also that a lot of shops are closed...
 

Blackburn coffee shop

There is a lot of creative coffee shops in Paris, and I was happy to find this one. Amazing cappuccino.

There is a lot of small records shops all around the city, but it is rare to see one opening and with a real concept behind. Walrus is an amazing large shop full of recent vinyl album (don't look for a vintage Beatles record here), where you can take a good coffee or a beer to talk about other passionate about music !

Follow me in Paris (part 1) - Puces St Ouen

posted in Life & travels  at 12.33 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening The Beatles - Yellow submarine

Last month, I spent a week in Paris, for the launch of the Niepi magazine. I'm always happy to be in Paris, but also glad when I returned to my village in the south of France !
 
I was pleased to finally see the famous "Puces de St Ouen", THE fleamarket of Paris. Like everything in Paris, the prices are for... tourists, but I've seen amazing things ! I started my visit by the Dauphine Market. The access is a bit hidden as it is surrounded by clothes sellers completely uninteresting to me, but once you go back in, it's happiness to discover these shops...
 

The music section of the Marché Dauphine

 
Upstairs is the "music area" with several vinyl merchants and Vintage tourne disque shop full of record players, and own by a true passionate...

A little further in the market is the shop Au vieux format... feels more like a museum, but where you can buy everything that is exposed (if you can afford it)!

Marché Vernaison / Tombé du camion

 
The March Vernaison is really the heart of this fleamarket, it is where everything started... Each stand is packed with thousands of vintage objects, it is impressive to see so many in one place! My favorite was the discovery of Tombé de camion, a concept store that sells thousands of small objects, beads, keys... wood and metal letters ! The most interesting is the decoration of the store and the accumulation of all these objects...

Paris 18eme - Loft in Montmartre

As we are a gluten free family and we do not ride on gold (yet), Airbnb is the best solution to be installed comfortably in Paris for a week! Found thanks to his facebook, we settled a few days in the apartment Celine Kern ... it's like to go with friends, but the friends are not there! And her loft is just at 15' by walk from the St Ouen flemarket, so perfect for a week end... Some pictures she send me (took some via instagram but not of the full studio...)

Excellent work! However, I think the B.O.I.D project dragon is too similar to the Wales national dragon, even the gold coins look...
