Every SUNDAY morning head out on the METRO . . . . early  . . . .as they start to pack up  around 12:30 PM !
My husband has been a collector of beautiful usefull (?less) objets from the flea markets of Paris since many years , . . . and still we go check  on Sunday mornings . . .
These days, 
he is collecting small glasses 
and, yes, he found another ''must have''  . . .

I also am a collector of 'things'but I find the prices are ridiculously high these days- so it isn't fun anymore . . . .
I think I am spoiled by ''frenchies'' in atlantic Canada now . . .. 
mostly I  just people watch  . . . and  enjoy the amazing things one sees here . . .
For instance .. 
these shoes !! I think of who might have made them?!!!!
Did they live by the sea shore .  .or just collect shells and need a reason for doing so?!!
I would love to know the whys and story behind this  ONE SHOE!sitting here alone  one Sunday morning . .  .
