Plucky Maidens Go To Paris AGAIN! ~ May 23 - 27, 2013


Due to overwhelming demand, we have just booked an additional flea market buying trip in the City of Light!

The hotel is reserved, our passports are ready, the treasures await...Won't you join us?

The Plucky Maidens invite you to shop, explore and wander the streets of Paris for 5 days and 4 nights...
May 23 - 27, 2013.


                   
Here's what is included in the Plucky Maidens package:

~~~ 4 nights' accommodation at the Villa Montparnasse in central Paris. Here's a description of our hotel...


"Located on the Left Bank, in the heart of the Montparnasse district in Paris, the welcoming Villa Montparnasse is situated in a quiet and safe neighborhood. This property is a perfect combination of charm, elegance and modernity. Boasting a colonial style setting, it offers numerous personalized services, such as a comfortable lounge, a bar, a 24-hour reception desk, a concierge service, an Internet point and Wi-Fi Internet access in the public areas."

Shoppers are able to book a double (2 twin beds) room or a single (1 double bed) room.

                 

~~~ 3 shopping trips to the fabulous Paris flea markets; Porte de Clingnancourt, Porte de Vanves, Porte de Montreuil and/or other local venues.



                 
~~~ 1 group trip to the historic flower market along the River Seine


~~~ 1 group trip to the Montparnasse Cemetery



~~~ 1 wine soaked picnic in the Luxembourg Gardens

                 
~~~ Carnet of 10 metro/bus tickets for each shopper.  
We will also show you the basics on how to get around in Paris using the Metro and buses...the best (and least expensive) way to see the sights!

Don't speak French?  Don't worry....We do!  Don't know Paris?  Don't worry....We do!  You will be accompanied by 2 French speaking (& Paris-adoring) guides for all of our group activities.  

Package does NOT include:

~~~ Air fare 

~~~ Meals (other than our group picnic).  The hotel is located near many cafes and bistros, and has a cozy  restaurant where you can enjoy breakfast or coffee to start your day.

~~~ Guided tours of the city.  (We are happy to help you to arrange this type of tour, but it is not included in the Plucky Maidens package.)

~~~ Shipping items back to the U.S.  This trip is designed for purchase of smaller items...ephemera, linens, jewelry, bric-a-brac, etc. Specifically, treasures that can fit in an extra suitcase, or that you are willing and able to mail home.  Please note: If you are interested in acquiring large items, such as furniture or art work, this Plucky adventure may not be the right one for you!


Cost: If you prefer your own room at the Villa Montparnasse, the cost for the 5 day package is $1,790.  If you are traveling with a friend and want to share a room, the cost is $1,310 per person.  



Please send an email message a.s.a.p. to pluckymaidens{at}gmail{dot}com to secure your space for this fabulous trip!  Let us know how many people will be traveling and we'll confirm via email.  A $500 non-refundable, per person deposit is due when you sign up. The remaining balance is due in full no later than March 
1, 2013.


Many more questions will be answered, advice will be given & packing tips will be shared in the coming weeks and months.  We hope you can come along on this very Plucky Parisian Adventure!


A bientot!
