It gave me the information that I was needing to check on traveling to France. It was was well written and illustrated. It would be a great reference to take upon traveling.

Exploring the Flea Markets of France is a witty, informative book which makes you want to hop on a plane to France, put on your comfortable shoes and start searching for flea market treasures. Never dry or boring, and often funny (would you like to buy a bucket of dead fish?), this book is full of useful tips for both experienced and aspiring flea market shoppers. Whether you are actually planning a trip to France or are simply an armchair traveller, you must read Ms Price's book (you won't believe she is a lawyer).

This is an engaging, knowledgeable book that vividly conveys the sights and sounds of French flea markets and their remarkable history. The author knows her stuff, and her love for the colours and textures of their wares is infectious. Price's prose style is friendly and authoritative, with a sly sense of humour. I found it a great read for anyone who likes France, but it's a must for the flea market enthusiast.

Would never sell this book! Would never loan this book! But you can come to my house and look at it. Every bit of information (and there is a lot) is absolutely accurate!
My friend Joann and I had planned two weeks in Paris, just for Flea Markets, when my "brilliant" friend Annie in California sent me this book. I can't image my "hunt" without it. It made preparing for the trip a blast and the actual running around a breeze. Thank you Sandy. I would buy anything that you wrote. To the rest of you: Don't even think about it. Just buy the book and hop on a plane. Take along Sandy's advice and extra suitcases!

Thank you, Sandy, for this great book! Just returned from Paris where 3 other antique dealers and I visited all the markets listed for Paris that were available in November. The information was accurate and honest and the directions very complete. This is a great time saver for serious shoppers like we are and enabled us to maximize our limited time in Paris. We plan to use the other sections of the book on a future trip (soon we hope!) and recommend it to others we discover that are planning a shopping trip in France. Well worth the modest price!

Every time we go to France, I pull out this book and read about the flea markets in the area or city we will be visiting. It has been a kick to visit flea markets here and there in our travels in France. Albeit it's quite dated now, but I still found it amazingly accurate on a trip to Brittany in June 2007. I knew what days to look for markets in what towns. I'd love to see another addition and like the idea of photos or drawings in the first section of the book where she writes about the kinds of items to look for.

This book gives prices in FF (French Francs). France changed from Francs to Euros in 2000. Does that give you a hint of how out-dated this book is? Granted, a lot of the information will still be valid, but much will not; needs another edition with a serious update. Also, could use lots of photos or drawings to illustrate the points she's making (for examples, Price discusses various types of French pottery; it would be nice to see what she's talking about)

This is probably a better book for armchair travel than for actually guiding you through French flea markets. Good luck!
