tombees du camion. we had a nice little chat with the lady who worked at the store & she told us that what they sold there was all kinds of antique plastic toys & knickknacks that were discovered in old abandoned parisian factories. it was seriously the coolest thing ever.
ada the globetrotting doll. nicola bought a doll. we left the store. she showed me what she got & then i had to go back & get a plastic doll too : ) i named mine colette & started to take photos of her around paris. today, she rides in my purse where ever i go, kept safe in a sock. i've been taking photos of her around towns i visit too : )
clonette dolls (or baby deidei) from west africa. we discovered that there was a factory in paris where we could get them & tried setting up a meet-up with the factory. the meet-up fell through & we were a bit bummed. but in the next couple of days, when we were wandering the streets of paris, we unbelievably stumbled upon a store called antoine et lili that was actually selling the real dolls!! we each picked one out for 9euros. mine is pale yellow & nicola's is purple : ) we have yet to name them, but we love them & the amazing experience it was finding them!
if you would like to buy one online, i found a store (located in la) that sells two different sizes : )
