HOTEL LUTETIA PARIS…….Renovated for $200 million…..and now open.

In the 1920’s……  guests were Charles de Gaulle, James Joyce, Albert Camus.  Picasso and Matisse lived here in the 1030’s.  In the 1950’s Josephine Baker crooned in the bar.


More recent guests ……..Brad Pitt and Catherine Deneuve…..and the list goes on.

After 100 years………the grand LUTETIA is once again grand.  When I stayed here in 1970….my room was $20 [and that was a lot]……..now it is almost $1000.

Bar Josephine…..Murano glass chandeliers ………new baths.  There are seven signature suites  but those go for $5000 a night.

ETSY at the GRAND BAZAAR

Today was ETSY day at my local flea market.

Antiques……..Artisans and Edibles………..and no mention of the FLEAS.

MATHILDE FREUND….102 years “young” has been selling her wares at the GRAND BAZAAR for 30 years.  She fled from the Germans in 1937…..to PARIS…..then to NEW YORK.  When I see her at the “Flea” we converse in German….and in FRENCH when I am with my friend Julie [from Paris].

JUDITH LIEBER passed away on Saturday

The famous handbag designer JUDITH LIEBER and her husband, GERSON LIEBER, the modernist artist………..both passed away on Saturday of heart attacks.

Her handbags were luxurious and collected by museums . Many of her clients collected dozens of her bags.  WARHOL called them works of art.  Judith did not consider them to be works of art…..she answered….”I am an artisan”.

CLICK ON THE WATERMELON.……….

Her bags run about $5,000 each…….more for vintage bags.
