Oh Lucy, lucky you. I LOVE the market. I would have wanted to buy a basket for everyone I know for Christmas. What fun. Thanks for sharing it with us.

My sister lives outside of Paris and the french markets are just fantastic. There is just nothing else like it anywhere.

Thanks for sharing your lovely photos, Lucy. Why is it that British markets are never as colourful or as interesting as foreign ones??

Oh just wonderful.. thanks for that little jaunt.


What a coincidence! Last Sunday, I was in a street market in Caloundra, (a small seaside town in Queensland, Australia) and there was a stall selling these same amazing bags! I was instantly attracted to them and bought myself one - smaller than yours, a shoulder bag with a zip. Like the ones hanging up in your picture. I just love it. The bags are made in Madagascar, using raffia and leather. Raffia palms are native to Madagascar and they remove the fibrous inner layer of the leaves to make raffia rope, which can then be dyed.
