PARIS BUYING TRIP SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2015

I returned last night from Paris after spending three very fruitful weeks with pal Mary Ellis. We had a great time scouring Parisian flea markets and antique fairs for interesting brocante. New women's clothing and accessories brands for the coming seasons where also on my radar, I cannot wait to share with you what I discovered! Just keep an eye on our Instagram feed for daily updates, exciting times ahead! 

Below are some of the highlights from our trip.....

Good morning Paris! Views from our wonderfully located Parisian appartment on the rue des Martyrs in the 9th South Pigalle, it's my new favourite place to stay in Paris. Cafes such as KB, Rose Bakery and Buvette were just a stones throw from our appartment, we were spoilt for choice! The quality of the small speciality food stores on rue des Martyrs was brilliant! We ate the most delicious cured salmon, charcuterie, meats, cheeses, wine, breads, pasteries and fruit and veg. Travelling with my friend Mary Ellis who just happens to be a gun chef was such a treat. Some of the best meals in Paris where actually prepared by her in our own little Parisian kitchen....
