Street Signs Of Paris





The street signs of Paris. Why are they so much more attractive ? 

If you go to the Paris Flea Markets you can purchase ones that have been taken down and replaced. Paris is broken down in quarters, some more expensive to live more than others. 

I've seen old signs go for over $100.00.

Rue Vivienne is one of my favorite streets ever! The arcade there is like taking a step backwards into time. I love your blog...and thank you so much for frequenting mine! xxxxx

BHV in Paris used to sell new signs like that if you want something less expensive. Of course, they don't have that antique feel.

What a lovely reminder of one of my favorite cities! And yes, they do street signs (and metro markers) so much better than we do...it does inspire!
