’50s Fever

If you have a look at the Secrets of Paris Calendar, you might notice there are more than a few “vintage” and “retro” events, from swing dance concerts and vintage hair salons to clothing and furniture sales. Not that this is new, but there sure seems to be a lot of them at the moment! The organization “50s Sound” seems to organize most of them, so it’s worth getting on their mailing list if you’re into the music or would like to set up a stand to sell off your extra poodle skirts at the next vide-grenier (swap meet). If you’re into classic cars, head out to the Esplanade of the Château de Vincennes (the big parking lot between the castle and the Parc Floral entrance) the first Sunday of the month from 9am-12:30pm to see the largest gathering of vintage, classic and antique (pre-1982) cars at the Vincennes en Anciennes.

    Ah! Thanks for sharing this. I live just nearby in Saint-Mande and had no idea about this. Can’t wait until May to check it out for myself.
