I'm going to Paris

For several years I've wanted to take one of the Red Shed Girl's trips to Paris. I've made sure my passport is up to date, and watched as they blogged about the trips. I did go on one guided trip with the girls to my first Junk Bonanza and I must say, they think of everything. Val even contributed to the recent Flea Market Style magazine on page 11 in an article about shopping the Paris Fleas. So I knew there was no better group to go with.



But you see I'm a cheapskate and it takes a lot for me to part with a dime, so I've been putting it off.

Then one day Mr R said to me "when you are 80, and you can't go, will you regret not going?" Of course the answer was "yes", and so that was all the nudge I needed.


After a few conversations with Val and a small down payment, I'm headed to Paris (in April) ...It's gonna be a looonnnnggg wait, but well worth it I'm sure.

I'm so excited!!!!!!! And I can't wait to share my first experience out of the US with all of you.

In case you are not familiar with the Red Shed Girl's tours, go here for all the info.

Your sweet husband is 100% right. The Paris fleas are mind-blowing. You're going to love it! Bring extra duffle bags—just saying. Unfortunately, I went 20 years ago, way before I was a dealer.... Have a BLAST (and blog about it ad nauseum)! XOXOX

Oh Margo, that sounds like a fabulous trip!! I've been very blessed to have had the opportunity to get to Paris twice and I loved it. My only regret is that I didn't get to any of the Paris Flea Markets as the group I was traveling with was not interested in that at all! Someday I'll go back and spend my entire time scouring the fleas.
I'm very happy for you!
