This interesting event, which runs four times a year, has been raised to my attention by Camille Loubat of Tapage Mediatique.
If you are interested in vintage fashion, furniture and lifestyle objects, it is not too late to rush out of bed and get yourself at l'Espace Blancs-Manteaux in the Marais. There are plenty little bakeries and cafes around so you won't have to skip breakfast!
Obviously, this is if you are lucky enough to be in Paris!
But if you don't, we will try to give you a glimpse of what it is all about, so you can get there for the next one at the end of May!
The next edition will have a dedicated section for vinyls and vintage hifi - and I will definitely review this one on my other blog: www.frenchvintagehifi.com.
During this current event, the furniture designed by talented architect and designer Gae Aulenti for the film "La Piscine" will be for sale. I am lucky enough to own a set of cutlery she designed for a restaurant in Monaco in the 1970s called Le Fontane - see photo below - but they are not for sale! You may have spotted them in my photos of recipes, as we are using them anytime we feel like it and definitely when we have guest over.
So, if you send me a good recipe or guest post on anything French and I get to publish it, you may well be invited for dinner and experience both my cooking and Gae Aulenti's cutlery! A vos plumes...
In the meantime you can try the best hot-dogs in Paris at Little Fernand who will have a stand at the Salon du Vintage
