Papier-mache puppets at Sophie Pretelat's Anges et Demons stand at the Antiquities Brocante at Bastille. This is the last weekend, so get your skates on! The brocante - with stands lining both sides of Canal St. Martin - is open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Sunday. You can buy tickets at the main entrance on Place de la Bastille.
More papier-mache puppets, including one representing a drunk (below).
A rather morose-looking statue holding homemade candles, hanging from their wicks.
A giant brass Madonna crown and a small collection of plaster animals.
19th-century oil painting of a buxom lass.
Framed woodcut designs on a Swedish desk.
A bust, cranberry glass carafe and glasses and blue gazing balls, for luck.
19th-century slate medallions; the one on the right is Napoleon Bonaparte.
An 18th-century well-worn wooden horse, with its original paint.
Mercury glass candlesticks.
Incredibly beautiful linens and lace at this stand. So tempting!
