Come Pluck With Us in Paris!



Plucky Maidens Shop the Flea Markets 
of Paris in 2017!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Junking, exploring, laughing and 
wandering the streets of Paris!


6 days and 5 nights of the most unique, small group tours in the
City of Light!  Our tours begin in Paris on Thursday morning
and continue through the following Tuesday afternoon.  

Dates for 2017

Thursday, May 25 - Tuesday, May 30  SOLD OUT!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Thursday, September, 7 - Tuesday, September 12  Just 2 spots left!


The Plucky Maidens package includes:

5 nights' accommodation and a delicious breakfast
each day at our lovely hotel in the Montparnasse district. 
Shoppers are able to book either a Double Room (2 twin beds) 
 or a Single Room (1 double bed) at the hotel

4 or 5 visits to a variety of Paris junking venues,
 including the Porte de Vanves flea market,
junk shops, brocantes and neighborhood
"clean out your attic" sales, the very best shopping experience of all!





A visit to the historic and beautiful Montparnasse Cemetery


A traditional French picnic in the Luxembourg Garden 
or a Moroccan lunch in the St. Michel district


and an evening sightseeing boat ride on the river Seine 


Some additional activities we have enjoyed together include: 
Visits to the famous Paris flower market, Notre Dame Cathedral, the St. Michel District, Shakespeare & Company bookstore, Montmartre neighborhood, the Paris Opera, the Eiffel Tower, Madeleine Church, Laduree (the world's best macarons!), Place de la Concorde, Tuileries Garden, the Arc de Triomphe
and other delightful surprises.



We will also show you the basics on how to get around in Paris using the Metro 
and city buses....the best way to see the sights! 


Please note:  There is a lot of walking on our flea market trips.  This is not the kind of trip where you spend most of your time on a coach,
filled with dozens of American tourists, being driven
 from monument to monument in 15 minute increments.
That's so NOT Plucky!  ;~)


For all of our group activities, you will be accompanied by
Pam Knecht (founder of the Plucky Maidens),
 who lived in Paris for 3 years.  Pam knows the city, speaks French and knows the best off-the-radar spots for true junking.


This trip is designed for purchase of items such as...
clothing, accessories, ephemera, linens, jewelry, 
bric-a-brac, etc.  Specifically, treasures that can fit 
in an extra suitcase, or that you are willing and able 
to ship home.  
We do not make arrangements for shipping containers.

Cost: If you prefer your own room at our hotel, 
the cost for the 6 day package is $2,775.  
If you are traveling with a friend and want to share a room,
 the cost is $1,975 per person. 

Please note: The package does NOT include air fare, 
lunches or dinners, other than the group meal listed above.


Please send an email message to: 
pluckymaidens{at}gmail{dot}com 

Let us know how many people will be traveling and 
we'll confirm via email.

 

non-refundable deposit is due when you sign up for the trip. 
($995 deposit each for travelers sharing a room,
$1,225 deposit for single accommodation travelers) 
~~~~~~
The remaining balance is due in full no later than 
 June 15, 2017 for the September 2017 package. 
~~~~~~
Refunds on remaining balances will not be considered for any reason,
 after July 1, 2017 (September package).


It's time for your Plucky Adventure...

She was so, very Plucky!


Couldn't wait to watch this show every week.  Mary was smart, funny, independent and totally Plucky.  Plus, she worked as a TV News Producer, which I grew up to be, too.  
Bonus points for the grooviest apartment ever.  And in real life, she was a 
dedicated advocate for Juvenile Diabetes and animal welfare.
Rest well and thank you, Mary.
