Oh my goodness, that is huge! On a streetside yet - how do they secure their wares overnight?
Is this a temporary display of wares or ongoing? Speak to us, lol.

Hi Frankie and Nick! Thanks so much for stopping by! This was supposed to be a temporary blog but I think we'll keep it going until we run out of photos. Then we'll just have to go back to Paris and take more pictures.

These booksellers have been a staple of life along the Seine in Paris for many, many years! They shut up their bookstands at night and open them in the morning...Wares are delivered to them and often sit in open boxes on the ground.

I love these book stalls -- you can find all kinds of interesting things here!

I remember these books hutches like it were yesterday. Unusual to see these lined all along the Seine.

Ah Paree--I've never been there but this is part of what I imagine. Wonderful capture.

Notre Dame and stands filled with postcards! I'm swooning!
