Dinan market day was on Thursday. We got there quite early, and our friendly cab driver insisted on dropping us right off in the middle of the narrow medieval street action! I have been to a few French markets and they are always so colourful and mouthwatering. This one lived up to that expectation well. I have made mosaics of my photos mostly, apart from these first three which are my favourites, as there were just so many good things to see! First of all, some hat modelling heads from the fifties or sixties. The lady told me and my friend off for photographing them, but it was too late by this point and I already had. Sorry lady!
Barba Papa with his family and friends fly happily against the blue.
|Lacy parasols. I wish I had bought one of these now, as they are beautiful.|
Not a lot of call for parasols here often though!
I love the covers of these two cat books.
The baskets were amazing-but just too big for my case!
Soap was small enough though. Soap and sweets, such pretty colours.
More Breton tops, and the foundation garments to support them!
An apology to Leenie-yes it is in France-I really should have said that! Northern French coast. It has a celtic history and links to celtic parts of Britain. For a teacher, you would think I would be better at not assuming that everyone else knows what I am talking about. And as someone who often says to other people 'I am not a mind reader'-Oh dear, self improvement coming up!
P.S. I had trouble uploading photos yesterday-hence late post, in fact they would not upload at all. I looked for advice and one piece said to try another browser. I downloaded Google Chrome which for some reason I have been putting off-and it worked brilliantly-almost instant uploads! Bleh to internet explorer! -Just incase anyone is having the same problem.
