Now available...
Our final week in 2015:
May 28th - June 2nd

We will meet at our hotel at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 28th.
(If you need assistance with travel plans, 
we're happy to refer you to a travel agent.)
Our time together continues through the following 
Tuesday afternoon, June 2nd.  
There will be group activities, as well as free time, each day of the trip.  



The Plucky Maidens Package includes:

***5 nights' accommodation and a delicious breakfast
each day at the lovely Villa Montparnasse*** 
{Shoppers are able to book either a double (2 twin beds) room or 
single (1 double bed) at the hotel.}



 ***6 visits to a variety of Paris junking venues***
 including the Porte de Vanves flea market,
junk shops, brocantes and neighborhood vide greniers 
("clean out your attic") sales, the very best shopping experience of all!




***A visit to the gorgeous and historic Montparnasse Cemetery***


***A traditional French picnic or a cous cous lunch at a Moroccan cafe***



***A nighttime visit to the Eiffel Tower...with Champagne!***



***An evening boat ride on the Seine***



***A 6 day bus & metro pass***


Some additional activities we have enjoyed together include: visits to Notre Dame Cathedral,  the St. Michel District, Shakespeare & Company bookstore, the Opera, Madeleine Church, Laduree (the world's best macarons!) Place de la Concorde, Montmartre, 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 (and least expensive) way to see the sights! 

Please note:  There is a lot of walking on our flea market trips.  Walking and stairs (Metro stations have lots of stairs)!  This is NOT the kind of trip where you spend most of your time on a huge bus, being driven from monument to monument in 15 minute increments.  That's so NOT Plucky!  
Did I mention that there's a lot of walking?  ;~)


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 our group activities....Pam Knecht (founder of the Plucky Maidens) who lived in Paris for 3 years and Julia Thelen, an American gal who was smart enough to marry a charming and handsome Frenchman, and has lived outside of Paris for 35 years.



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 mail home.  

Cost: If you prefer your own room at the Villa Montparnasse, 
the cost for the 6 day package is $1,965.  
If you are traveling with a friend and want to share a room,
 the cost is $1,445 per person.
