Trips - Itinerary - Antiques Buying Trip to Paris

Sample Itinerary

Note: We like to stay flexible so the itinerary is subject to change based on weather, interests of the group, and day of the week.

day 1

Meet us in Paris in the early afternoon for a welcome glass of bubbly in your beautiful apartment or boutique hotel.  We’ll have a light lunch and stroll around our elegant neighborhood for a nice little introduction to living in Paris “a la française.”  You ‘ll have time to unpack, relax and explore our arrondisement on your own before we head to dinner in a lovely neighborhood restaurant.

day 2

we’re up early and off to the fair!  With your guides leading the way, you’ll spend all day outside of Paris at a marvelous fair for antique lovers and professionals that only happens twice a year and attracts dealers from all over Europe.  We’ll have lunch at the fair (so much fun!) and spend the rest of the day continuing the hunt for treasures.  We’ll wend our way back into town for a light dinner on your own in the neighborhood.

day 3

We make an early morning stop at the famous Paris flea market to get the lay of the land and hopefully nab some one-of-a-kind goodies before the market closes at noon for lunch.  After lunch, you’re on your own to explore Paris to your heart’s content.

day 4

We’ll head to the outskirts of Paris for a delightful street market that specializes in small, decorative objects and collectibles galore.  Spend the afternoon on your own wandering around St. Germain des Pres in Paris or any of Paris’ wonderful little neighborhoods.  We’ll have a delicious dinner with the group at a little jewel of a restaurant that we adore.

day 5

We’ll spend the entire day at the flea market today.  With your expert buying guides paving the way, we’ll be scouring the aisles and booths for whatever catches our fancy.  We’ll introduce you to some of our favorite charming vendors and we’ll help you navigate the flea market’s many labyrinths.  .

day 6

Today is your day to enjoy Paris - from museums to shopping to wandering and soaking up the Parisian atmosphere. We'll meet up at the end of the day for a farewell dinner at a lively and fun restaurant. 

day 7

Au revoir, amies and see you next time!
