This is on the way home from Colmar as I forgot to snap one on the way there.Colmar is the nearest 'city' to us. It is down the valley and past kaysersberg and then across the plain of sweeping vineyards. It is much more modern than the quaint little villages that surround me in my chalet but it also has a heart of gorgeous old Alsatian buildings that would rival any others around.
a beautiful park with a carousel and a creperie.
We stopped first for lunch at a tiny place right at the beginning of old town.
Good Tarte Flambe and of course a nice Alsatian beer
The flea market is at La Place Des Dominicans every Friday, which is the site of an old Dominican church.
There were quite a few tables scattered along the plaza.
He managed to find the perfect thing, an old skeleton key as big as his hand. He is quite happy about his find though he saw many other things he wanted. I found a nice big bag of old red glass beads that I have slotted for Christmas ornaments and this great Alsatian fabric with hearts on it. (the heart theme is big here)
Afterwards we wandered down through the Place de La Cathedrale,
there were lots of tiny shops we wandered into along the way till finally collapsing in a tiny bar near the train station to wait for Frenchie to arrive
