Market Day Trip
Well today I decided to check out marché aligre to see what treasures I could find. All of the tour books say that it is a great market for fruits and veggies, and collectibles. I decided to walk there instead of take the metro, so I could window shop along the way. I found myself in Place des Vosges, which was the home of Victor Hugo. It had just started snowing again as I walked into the park to take this photo. As I left the park, I ended up getting lost and turning down the wrong street at Bastille. However, it turned into a happy accident. Along this street was Atelier d’art de France. It was about 4 blocks of artists and their workshops. There wasa wide variety of artists including, glass blowing, furniture makers and textile restoration. There was even a man creating beautiful umbrellas, and another making flutes. This picture is of a loom that was in one of the workshop windows.
