NICE - Cote d'Azur
Marche a la Brocante. This funny little "mutt" is very happy to follow his master every Monday to the flea market in the Cours Saleya. Not only does he guard the stall, but he also loves to play "hide and seek" in the empty crates, defying my camera. The Marche a la Brocante is held every Monday from 6 am to 6 pm, near the port and just off the Quai des Etats-Unis. It is so much fun, though August isn't the best month for antiques, the dealers cater more to tourist than to serious shoppers. Up and down the Cours Saleya there are fabulous gift shops, these are open everyday, selling beautiful baskets and many local products from Provence. It is certainly worth a visit.
