Latest news from St.Tropez Market

A tour of St.Tropez market

We are now back in the UK however I thought you would enjoy a post with the latest news from St.Tropez market. Just before we left I made another visit. This time the market had returned to its original home in the Places des Lices (the main square in St.Tropez). It was full of vibrant colours and the usual assortment of fun accessories.

If you want to learn about the early history of the village and why it is called St.Tropez I found an interesting site here. Saint-Tropez was a military stronghold and fishing village until the beginning of the 20th century. It was the first town on its coast to be liberated during World War II.  After the war it became an internationally known seaside resort, renowned principally because of the influx of artists of the French New Wave in cinema and the Yé-yé movement in music. It later became a resort for the European and American jet set and tourists.

Back to the present day market in St.Tropez

The hat I am wearing originally came from St.Tropez market. Below are similar ones that you can find online.

    Thank you Josephine for taking the trouble of treating us to your trip around the market. I felt as if I was there gazing at all these lovely things. Your work is much appreciated, fashion and travel blogs. Thanks again.

    Thank you, Josephine, I like the green dress with the orange scarf, too. Are you planning to have new items in the scarf shop this season?

      Hello Francie

      I did not find any nice scarves on my recent trip to the market. The stall I usually like was not there. It is now getting much more expensive. The cost of postage to the USA has gone up to about £11. Also if I buy from my supplier in Paris because of Brexit I will have to pay tariffs. I will be going back to Grimaud in June so maybe I will be able to find some scarves then.

    The green and tangerine combination gets my vote also Josephine!
    Recently you mentioned that Benetton was difficult to find so whilst in Tuscany I made a point of shopping for summer clothes and bought lovely linen trousers and high quality cotton T shirts, very striking in jewel colours!

      Hello Pru

      Yes I agree and wish we still had Benetton shops in the UK. I really like their styles.

    Lots of wonderful things….wish I was there to shop 🙂
    I had to giggle as I started to read….should be World War II not World War 11….(hope we never have WW11) could be Spellmesser because as I tried to type this it tried to change World to Work which of course leaves us all saying things we did not intend
