Storytelling Sunday: Fall Fair & Flea Market

Hello everyone,

It's been a while, but I wanted to add my little contribution to this month's Storytelling Sunday, a monthly "meet-up" organized by Sian at From High in the Sky, before the link closed down. Don't hesitate to click on the link above to have a good read.

This month, I wanted to share a few pics of some events that are organized every year in Bordeaux during fall. First, we have the fun fair (called Foire des Plaisirs). Our main square is loaded with carousels of all kinds.


Merry-go-rounds have the power to bring me back to my childhood and to make my heart smile instantly. What is not to love in these attractions?



In parallel, we have a huge flea/antique market organized to celebrate the new wine in the Notre-Dame neighborhood, THE place to go for Antiques in Bordeaux. Again, a moment to walk down memory lane as some objects, once treasured, are looking for new hosts or connoisseurs for a second life.


I had never really explored this area before. It is full of little specialized boutiques with a strong accent put on vintage decor.


Of course, I ventured inside some Antique stores. Usually not my favorite as they are excessively expensive and a bit "too much" for me in terms of aesthetics. But still, it proved more interesting than I thought. It felt like wandering inside a museum for the most part. 



All in all, I'll come back next year for another tour of these events and places as I don't think I can get tired of them. Of course, at that time of the year, the weather becomes unpredictable and the sky reveals  different shades of light in the same afternoon. It feels like between in different places at different moments.


Hope all is well. I'll come back very soon...
