Buying antiques in France

How to blend in and NOT stand out like a tourist

Generally the French are more sophisticated dressers then we are as Americans overall, especially in the larger cities like Paris. However in the smaller villages, you will see the locals more casually attired, especially at the local Brocantes.

I generally like to dress in more muted tones, wearing mostly black/White/navy, sage greens and Brown. Not only will you blend in with the locals (thereby getting better deals at the antique tables) but coordinating your outfits while travelling will be much easier as everything will be interchangeable with everything else you have packed for the trip!
