Shopping on the Champs Elysees

Window shopping, that is. We took the Metro to the Arc de Triomphe and walked down one side of the Champs Elysees and then up the other side. We did stop for drinks at a very nice cafe, Napoleone, with tables, on the sidewalk. I ordered a cappuccino, which was a mere $14.00 CAD for the equivalent of a half a cup of flavoured froth. Well, I only ever drink a half a cup of coffee, but how did they know that?

A $14.00 coffee comes with a free "biki."
I actually think that the restaurant was charging for the street theatre that its location provided. Such as -

Paris style - wear black, red or orange and a scarf!!

Or a hat and something interesting.

Or just an interesting hat!!

The only shops we went into were the car shops that had the most amazing vehicles. They let everyone take pictures of their treasures, which in turn were posted on everyone's FB. Marketing that is free except for the rents on one of the world's most prestigious streets. Message me the next time you see a picture of one of these cars and please tell me how we can make all this amazing advertising work for knitting!!

Have an awesome day!!
