What Would You Buy at a French Supermarket?

Confiture (jam) and a baguette are often start of the day with espresso... But no need to stay with ordinary.

Clementine ?

Fig with walnuts?

Shelves filled with Muesli choices..

In France, customary to use yogurt atop cereal rather than milk.... Or alone.

Apricot one of my favorite!

This one with hazelnuts had me imagining the taste!

Love choosing my eggs for the
Mini cartons of 6.

Eggs and omelette are saved for lunchtime in France.

Milk you stock in the pantry not the refrigerator...

Bio.. Organic very popular.

Ready for a picnic..
Yummy Gaspacho in cartons.

Tapenade for fresh baguette.. Green or black olives.

Or tasty olives packaged easy for the picnic basket.

Sardines very popular in endless

And the famous French dressing!

Can't go without wine!

Great wine for $5-$10

Or for $20-$25 one costing so much more in USA.

More choices later... Time to sample

It Was So Hot In The South of France....

Cats were finding shade ....

Children were finding shade....

Swans were heading underneath the bridge!

And ice cream was ordered in giant glasses !

Thinking Outside The Box

These French dealers show us...
Decorate with Creativity!

A large display of colored yarn becomes Art

All these metal poles needed was Colorful shades

Mix chemistry with flowers for a new vase look

Take a chance!

You Know You Are in France When The Antique Fair Has.....

Outdoor tents filled with old, vintage, and modern...
Dogs are not left home...
Lawn to sit, relax, and enjoy the beauty...
Sometimes the beauty encourages a hug!

What a stage!

French Twist in Advertising

French humor with presentation always makes me smile....
This Paris shop owner took the stuffy out of his window display and mixed in a bit of sexy .

First time I have ever smiled at a shop selling "autographs".

Adding "unexpected" works miracles!
