Time for another book review. Claudia Strasser’s new book “Paris Flea Market Style” gets a two thumbs-up from me.
It was published in early March and I was so excited when my copy arrived. Claudia takes us on a virtual journey through the flea markets of Paris offering advice and tips along the way. It’s a much needed guide to help navigate the mind-boggling array of shopping possibilities. To say the photos are eye candy is an extreme understatement.
Through her photographs, she whisks us away to the City of Lights where the most fabulous antiques in the world can be found. Isn’t the hue of the blue fabric on the bergères divine?
So many layers of treasures to be had everywhere! Half the fun is the exploration. It could become a game of “I Spy”!
A daybed is definitely on my shopping list for my next trip to France.
If you have a chair fetish like moi, then shopping in France is a must!
Shall I look twice at these treasures? Will they come home with me?
Ahhh, a magnificent zinc oeil-de-boeuf (bull’s eye) window frame …..be still my heart! All it needs is a mirror for a grand statement.
I noticed a few of her photos contained vintage letters. See my recent post HERE.

The photos below were taken by me as I made my way through the Paris Fleas.
Yes, I know. Take a deep breath.
The opening inside flap of the book reads, “If you love French interior design and bargain hunting, Paris is the place where your shopping daydreams come true.” So true, Claudia. So true.
Will your daydreams come true like mine did? Come with me to Paris and Normandy this September for a Blogger’s Brocanting Tour in France. Only ONE spot left!
In the meantime, don’t hesitate to buy the book “Paris Flea Market Style” and curl up with a cup of tea and your daydreams.
