Paris + Flea Market

I yearn to travel to Paris, and although I haven't yet made it across the pond, I know I'll get there eventually. And when I do, one of the "must visit" places will be the famous Parisian flea market, Le Marche aux Puces (Les Puces). In an ironic twist, while trolling Toronto's Sunday Antique Market, I came across a beautiful pair of street scene paintings featuring la tour Eiffel et Arc de Triomphe.

I make purchases based purely on the pretty factor, so I don't know if these paintings are valuable, but they are definitely oil on canvas. And although the frames are in fairly good condition, they are blue, one mat has some water damage, and there is a slight musty scent, so they will need to be re-framed. Can't wait to see them freshly framed and hanging in the new place - I have just the spot in mind for them!


  1. That's a terrific purchase. Love the blues and oranges in them both. Once you reframe them, they will be spectacular.
