4 or 5 visits to a variety of Paris junking venues,

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, the Paris Opera, the Eiffel Tower, Madeleine Church, Laduree (the world's best macarons!), Place de la Concorde, Tuileries Garden, 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 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 junking spots in the city.

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: 
to secure your space for this delightful trip!  
Let us know how many people will be traveling and 
we'll confirm via email.

The remaining balance is due in full no later than 
March 1, 2017 for the May 2017 package and

  1. My review:
    This trip was so much fun!!! I met the most amazing group of ladies! We found some incredible flea market finds. This trip is great for both the experienced & non experienced traveler. Pam and Julia did a wonderful job organizing the trip so that everyone got to see things they were interested in. I will be back! I highly recommend this trip to all!

  2. I see they sell out fast. keeping an eye out for next one.
    do you gals ship stuff home? or just what you can carry back on plain?

    looks fun
