Woke up a little on the late side today but set out for some shopping at about 11am. First stop was Rue Cler, a street closed to automobile traffic where there is a store for just about anything food wise. We munched on some fresh blueberries as we strolled and people watched.
Our next destinations were a few passages – mini strip malls built in the 1850s. We went to Passage des Princes first. It was completely closed but I was able to snap a photo with absolutely no one in it, so that was cool. The next three are one after the other: Passage des Panoramas, Passage Jouffroy and Passage Verdeau.
A few stores were open but we mostly window shopped. Before hopping onto the metro to go to Marches aux Puces (the flea market) we stopped into a bakery for a chocolate chip baguette – tres yum!
The flea market was full of little shops with a ton of different antiques. You could very well get lost in the maze without a map. We didn’t buy anything but it was fun to look.
Back home for a Boursin snack and a rest – going out to dinner in a bit. Here are a few photos of the passages:
