Of course one of the highlights of Paris was the shopping. You probably knew I’d get to this. But it wasn’t always the merchandise that made it fun, but that the store fronts were so beautiful. I didn’t make it to a traditional Paris Flea Market like so many of us dream of. And I’ve been told they’re not as exciting as the American ideal of one, but I did love browsing the many different shopping venues that Paris had to offer. Here are a few of them…
