It is early morning here in the south of France. I am in Provence on a buying trip for our boutique stores, coton frais. Our two locations are in Jupiter and Boca Raton. Although we are a private label manufacturer of blanc resort wear, we sell gifts and accessories so I am attending one of the markets today in Aix en Provence to find the perfect gift items for our Florida clientele.
The markets In France move to different towns each day of the week, and today it is here. Tomorrow I will venture out to Lourmarin and Bonnieux. Each market varies so visiting several assures you a wide array of choices to select from. Some markets only carry produce, food, herbs and flowers others carry antiques but the one today is a classic provencal market…carrying everything from clothing to paintings, delicacies, herbs and spices, fresh fish….lavender and soaps and even rotisserie poulet!
The weather the last few days has been rainy, but I am hoping for a sunny morning! Bonjour…wish me luck!
