La Braderie on Sunday

Sunday, and our last day in Lille. The evening before the weather had turned and we'd seen quite an impressive storm from our hotel window, with wild thunder and lightening. Thankfully on Sunday we only had a little light drizzle in the morning before it cleared up. And I think it drastically reduced the number of people on the street which made it a lot nicer to walk about.
Bunting! Find number 1, vintage regional bunting. I picked up 7 little flags in mint condition for 50 cents a piece. Lovely.
Great old sign.
Charming streets of the old town. We wandered through the old town a little before having to make our way back to the hotel then off to the train station. There Mr E and I parted ways, as he went onto Moscow and I went back to Amsterdam. Wonderful wonderful trip! Love all our treasure, which I'll show you some of tomorrow.
