Sunday Favourites with Chari.

For Chari's Sunday Favourites @ Happy To Design  today, a rerun of a  post from July 2009 which you might enjoy.

Sometimes the last thing my husband wants to do is trail around a flea market with me, but sometimes he humours me and comes along.
And so it was that yesterday, Bastille Day, we took a drive to Bricquebec on the Contenin Peninsula to a vide grenier (flea market) which I had seen advertised.

Well, guess what?

There wasn't one, I was wrong! and he was not a happy man -  until we spotted L'Epicerie Parisienne.

Those of you who know my other half know that he is a very good cook, quite a gourmand & wine connoisseur, so we spent a very pleasant 20 minutes or so wandering around this wonderful food store admiring the food and the eclectic decor.

Madame, la patronne, was a delight and when I enquired, of Monsieur, if it was o.k. for me to photograph his displays, he answered:
"S'il vous plaît, Madame, comme si vous étiez à chez vous".

Today, we enjoyed some of our purchases from L'Epicerie Parisienne for lunch.

I hope that you have enjoyed a second visit to l'epicerie today, bon dimanche a tout.


  1. Hi Maggie...

    So happy to see you join up with the fun of Sunday Favorites this week, my friend!

    Ohh noooo...I know that this is a post from last year, but I am sorry that your flea market was not to be found! Sounds like it would have been great fun!!! However, L'Epicerie Parisienne looks like it was a sweet find! I would love to shop a little place like that...of course I probably would have no clue as to what I was looking at in there! Hehe! Looks like your husband found a few treats to bring home though! Thank you for sharing this sweet post with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party, my friend! It's always a treat to get to look into the culture of Normandy! Hope you'll share more with us!!!

    Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

    PS...the link for Sunday Favorites will be up this evening at 6pm (MST)

  2. Maggie, what a fun way to spend a Sunday or any day for that matter. Thanks for taking us along again. ;-)
    Taking a little respite from the garden. So much to do after old man winter stopped by recently. I just picked up a few magazines. I think I'll fix a cup of tea and relax with a bit of inspiration.
    Enjoy the weekend. ~ Sarah

  3. Oh Maggie, That was SUCH FUN! I would have wanted to shop around there too...It looked "Oh So Good"! Thank you SO MUCH for taking us along. Have a wonderful weekend,
    Hugs, Donna

  4. Such a pretty place to visit. I bet he was glad he came along.

  5. Your day turned out well, after all. I'm sure your husband was a happy man!

  6. Maggie,

    A wonderful post. When I travel, I always shop! I love little gourmet food shops and rarely leave empty handed. Have a wonderful week!


  7. Always happy to revisit your posts and your gorgeous photos. Looks like a delightful way to spend a day!

  8. Thanks for the tour. Sorry your day at the flea market did not work out, but looks and sounds like it turned out well.

  9. Wow, what a lovely place! How I would love to visit! I'm sorry your flea market was missing in action, but that store more than made up for things, I would think.
    Thanks so much for sharing!


Thanks for stopping by, your visit just made my day!
