Little things - Paris, Part Three

La Galerie Portable, Montmartre

This post is for all the great little things we found in Paris and loved, and that didn't fit in the other posts.
La Galerie Portable above, for example. We found it when we decided to random walk around Montmartre after leaving the Sacré-Coeur, in the corner of Rue des Saules with Rue de l'Abreuvoir. In fact, the latter street was all very pretty. Starting from the Rue des Saules, it begins with La Maison Rose,

 which has tables on both sides of the street and where of course we sat down for coffee, the street looks like this

and if you're lucky you'll turn around after taking this photo and see this

The rest of Montmartre and Caulaincourt was equally cute.
We spent some time at the rooftop of the Galeries Lafayette and Printemps too. I've shared a picture of the view on the Light in Paris post, but here's one looking down,

and two of new gorgeous jewelry brands I found inside:

I also really wanted to go to the Jardin des Plantes since I first saw it on the map. We entered from the door that leads to this beautiful rose path

it exits back at the main flower garden, next to this cave tree:

The leaves go all the way to the ground. And last but not least, the amazing and huge Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, where I found an orange silk scarf, a beautiful purple top, everyone loved my necklace, someone told me I look Russian, and I spent too much time with 3 other female tourists trying to find all the different rings that were in the box and bought too many of them because they were that cheap and perfect for stacking

Ring shopping at St Ouen
The final six.

Around half the box were butterflies, the rest were different kinds of leaves, crabs in three different colours, a sea horse and tiny round flowers. I would tell you where in the market it is, but I don't remember the name. It was after the big building where the antiques where indoors, and there was also this

St Ouen

Update: That little guy above helped me find it on the map of Marché Vernaison. It's somewhere on Allé 5. The website has also maps of how to get there :)

More little things that sadly aren't in photos include Les Marais, where I entered almost every shop and found the cutest skirt, the Quartier Latin and Levallois, where we were staying. For more of Paris see:
