My husband and I will be arriving in Paris 1st Jan 2013 for 4 days.
I would really like to purchase some lovely french homewares (not furniture though) and also 100% european/french linen for the house (for example linen throws, sheets, doona covers cushion covers etc etc). I live in Sydney and French 100% linen bed sheets are very VERY expensive. I am hoping to find a bargain in Paris (hmmmmm maybe I am after the impossible though!?!??)
Do you have any recommendations on a particular precinct of paris that has many homeware/linen stores or a particular market that tends to sell more of these types of items?
I am also hoping to catch a vide grenier but I am not sure if there is one on during the first week of January 2013. Does anyone know if there is one on and where it is please?
I have been to Paris a few times before but always in summer. I hope that the weather is not raining so we can walk around all day wandering the streets. We are staying in the 6th - St German Des pres.
Thanking you in advance for your assistance.
Dan and Chris
