St. Tropez Market

wendy and i perusing the market in st. tropez
for those of you traveling to st tropez (or the south of france) , the saturday market should not be missed, if you are in the area (as i am all summer on the italian riviera), a brief car ride (it's beautiful btw) is worth the trip! the sites, smells and food stuffs knock me out, no matter how many times i go, it takes my breathe away.  and on a recent trip with my guests photographer scott lowden and his gorgeous  and talented wife wendy market day was no expection.  i made many food purchases...the nice thing about living here is that i could do my grocery shopping, i am still enjoying the olives i bought on our excursion.

i could not resist the savory tarts in this case + the most delicious chèvre i have ever eaten.

boaters my dear friend ginny would die for!
this is me closer to heaven than i have ever been!
well there was one very special item that really rocked my world and you can see that scott captured the rapturous moment quite well. i had never seen this vintage hermes bag up close, only in photographs, so when i came across it i had a stylist rapture moment to say the least...

how adorbs is the french art dealer! i bought my darling paintings from him:)
i even bought to great little french riviera style paintings. they now hang proudly in my flat by the sea to remind me of the fun day we had at the market together.

we later parked ourselves for the afternoon at a beach club and took in the view of a gathering of super yachts just off shore.

what a day...not to be missed if you are in the area. my tip is to get there early, parking is limited and there is only one smallish road into the center of town. have breakfast by the harbor and then dig into the market around 10:00 a.m.

scott our personal photographer was always on the job. thanks scott for the gorgeous photos!
