Day 9 – Shop til You Drop

by Jenn

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:
