The weather was really, really hot and there were many markets in some streets.
And even a flea market around the Cathedral!
I bought for a few euros a nice 40's large pin hat and this wonderful 40's hat made of black felt and natural straw, I love this kind of large hat!!!
Who can dream for a better place to shop, isn't it?
Oh, I took this picture of my favorite coins purse, vintage from the 50's probably made for a child or a teenage girl. Must be an actor but who????
Toulouse's architecture is really different from where I live, kind of antique roman style.
This is the only picture of my husband this day... I was too busy to look all around me!!!
I don't like to wear sleeves less dress, most of the time I don't want to show my chubby arms... but when it's so hot outside, it's the best choice....
Here is the "Pont Neuf" (New Bridge).
It was my second time in Toulouse, but a map is still usefull.
I love to wear snood when I'm on vacation, comfy for hot weather and don't need to much time to get ready!!!
But there is a place you must not miss in Toulouse...
GROUCHO, one of the best vintage clothes store in France!!!
There are 2 stores one with stuff before the 70's and another one for vintage after the 60's.
I only visited the first one (you must know why...). I think that you can count shoppes with this quality on the fingers of only one hand in FRANCE...
What I love there is that everything is washed and restored before being sell.
Despite that, prices are quite affordable compared to the stores in Paris!
I met there the lovely Solenn, she is a former seller in this shop.
She is a 40's lover and will open a vintage boutique in Toulouse in september! You can visit her blog written in french there.
I was impressed by all these available accessories: shoes, hats, jewellery....
and hundred of vintage NOS cateyes glasses from the 50's in every colors!!!!
A lot of these kind of glasses are really narrow and it's nice to be able to try before buying a pair.
I was pleased to find a really nice black and green pair.
So much nice dresses but my favorites didn't fit me :-(
I hesitate to buy this small purse at the last minute... but finally let it for someone else...
And after a short visit to Solenn's under construction shop, it was time to go back...
Do you know Toulouse?
Have you some nice vintage shoppes near home?
