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...

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...)

I am a teacher too

posted in Life & travels  at 8.42 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France listening Depeche Mode
I started yesterday a workshop at ECV, in Aix-en-Provence, and it will be spread over a week (thank you Nathalie Brossard and Meike Kraus). This is what I love about my job/life, to be in Bali one day, teacher the next day... And the icing on the cake, the ECV is organizing an exhibition of TDC (Type Directors Club), which includes the creations of designers and typographers, all in the "Cité du livre" and its incredible entry!
