I like to get to Portes de Vanves early, as the dealers start around 7:00am; by 9:00am it’s crowded. This trip, I went directly from the airport and was there so early everyone was still setting up. I got to hang out and converse with all the dealers—a great Paris moment! Oh, and this suitcase is my constant companion. I am a carry-on kind of girl. I have mastered the art of packing. I can do a month long trip with this baby.
