To FLEA or not to Flea………..

My dear friend Monica………..with a smile on her face………and beautiful wares in her booth………a welcome sight at my local “Marche aux Puces.

When Napoleon ordered his imperial architect , Haussmann, to create broad boulevards in the middle of Paris……..he forced dealers of second hand goods to flee their dwellings………so they erected their stalls in 1860 at the gate “Porte de Clignancourt”………….where the famous Paris flea market still exists.

What did I buy today……..only the antique photo of the bride.

My friend, Simon, from Birmingham [as in England]…..with Larry, one of the markets favorite vendors.
