The Antiquites Brocante at Bercy Village, Paris, began today. The event continues from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through January 27th at Cour Saint-Emilion - Place des Vins de France, the old wine warehouses near Palais Omnisports and Parc de Bercy. If you go to the brocante, stop by Stand 104 and say hello to my Swedish friend M. Pettersson. He sells beautiful and unusual items, well worth a visit.
