A bunch of violins are sitting on the ground

Brocante — Rue Cler

Searching for silver, fine china, goblets of Baccarat, antique necklaces, old framed art pieces and other fine brocante pieces?  The next fabulous antique and brocante show will be on Rue Cler in the upper-crust 7th Arrondissement of Paris, on September 17th and 18th.  Over 100 antique and brocante vendors will be lined up near the Ecole Militaire metro.   Who knows what treasures you might find here, but you are guaranteed to find some excellent artifacts without having to go all the way to Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen.

Rue Cler, of course, is one of the most fashionable gourmet shopping streets in Paris, where Julia Child would shop when she lived in Paris and studied at Le Cordon Bleu.   Just a few blocks away from the Eiffel Tower, Ecole Militaire and Champs de Mars, it is just a simply charming place to buy cheese, fresh fruits and vegetables, or gaze at a boucherie or poissonerie.   Don’t miss out on Amarino, one of the best gelato places in Paris to make you feel like you are in Florence!
