Oh Honfleur! Be still my heart! One of my absolutely most favorite little towns in Normandy! Known for its picturesque port, lined with shops and sidewalk bistros, slate sided houses and the largest church made out of wood in France, Saint Catherine's which was the location of this weeks brocante.
Honfleur was painted many times by the artists Claude Monet, Gustave Courbet and Eugene Boudin. I could take (I think I probably have!) millions of pictures of this place!
It is a perfect place to spend the day exploring the shops and galleries, grabbing a portside lunch, or strolling the side streets to look at the magnificent old houses (OLD--14th century onward!)....and bien sur! La Brocante!
|Lunch? Or maybe a late afternoon aperitif?|
|Yum! Crepes -- Savory or Sweet?|
|Le Menu du jour....|
So what did I find this week? When I was not oggeling bistros, broom shops and cider merchants?
A few small things.....and my favorite? A gorgeous hand blown glass serving set--you will die for! I cannot wait to shoot it and post in my shop! Take a quick look when I do--I predict it will go as fast as I snatched it up at the brocante!
|Baaaaa! Fun items in a Brocante Shop in Honfleur.|
