The Musée des Arts et Métiers

Paris is known for its museums and there are so many that you're bound to find one that interests you. That is why my wife and I make it a point to check out the lesser-known museums during the first Sunday of the month since all the museums in the city are free. We figure that even if it isn't super interesting we won't feel like we wasted any money.

Antique shopping with the Divas

A few weeks back, Yetunde introduced us to the Chief Executive Diva, Toma Haines the lady behind Antiques Diva & Co. Today she takes us on one of her tours to Paris' Marché aux Puces.
Seeing as how I live very close at the moment to the Marché aux Puces in St Ouen, you'd think I would have explored it over and over again. The honest truth is that though I have been maybe 2-3 times, I soon discovered how little of it I had actually seen.

Promoting something that I know nothing about isn't quite my cup of tea so anytime I find a new service, tour or what have you that I may consider recommending to friends, guests and family, I just have to try it out myself to get a sense of what it's like first hand. So it was with this mission in mind that I asked Toma Haines of Antiques Diva & Co® to set my husband and I up with an antiques tour at one of the most well-known markets in Paris.
