As you may already know from my recent posts, Fabian and I are heading to Paris on vacation at the end of the month. As if that weren’t enough, I was recently invited on the trip of a lifetime with Huff Harrington in September. Ann Huff and Meg Harrington are the creative forces between Huff Harrington, a chic fine art gallery and home furnishings store in Atlanta, Georgia. Ann and Meg are huge francophiles with a passion for France and antiques. They travel there often to find fabulous things for their store and eventually found that they wanted to share the creatively inspiring process of scouring the French landscape for unique finds with others. As such, they began offering personally hosted shopping trips to Paris and Provence a few years ago. I will be joining Ann and Meg on their next trip to shop the hidden markets and best vendors in Paris from September 27th through October 3rd. I am so excited to visit Paris twice in my year and to see the city through Ann and Meg’s eyes, considering their passion and in-depth knowledge they have of the city and French antiques.

We’ll go off the beaten path to experience a couple of Paris’s best little street markets and we will also spend two fabulous days at the famous flea market, Les Puces. We’ll also venture outside the city to a wonderful antiques fair open only to dealers and buyers, so we will have access that I wouldn’t have on my own. We will have lively lunches and group dinners as a group and will also have a day of sightseeing and culture in the city. Evidently, we will also have some free time to explore on our own, so it sounds like a really well-rounded trip. You can see a sample itinerary here. Huff Harrington’s buying trips are geared towards smaller groups between 7 and 14 people, making for a more intimate experience. There are still a few slots left for the September trip, so if you’ve ever wanted to go on a buying trip to Paris with a couple of dynamic and knowledgeable guides, you can get all of the details and sign up here. We’ll see you there!

  1. That looks like a wonderful experience! Antiquing is one of the things I love most about living in France. You’ll have to get out of Paris on one of your trips–there are lots of gems in the countryside, especially in the south.

  2. That’s my idea of a dream trip! There is nothing better than traveling with knowledgable experts, especially in the world of antiquing in France. What a fabulous experience you’ll have. I’m going to their site right now to look at dates for their upcoming itineraries.

  3. What a fun and different way of traveling!! And in Paris no less! Hope you have a great time and look forward to following your trip here 🙂
