It's always (often?) better when it's French

Sometimes it does feel like the French do everything that little bit better doesn’t it? Certainly wine, probably food, usually films, often perfume, sometimes fashion and always that certain je ne sais quoi.

Well now I am adding French e-bay to the list.

If you have read hear before you will know I go through periods of addiction to e-bay. Up to now I hadn’t really realized, which is probably quite silly, that when you go to international ebay you really go to American e-bay- which is great but isn’t the whole of the international world.

So that is how I found e-bay France. I then found the perfume section on ebay France and a new love was born; there are treasures and delights in abundance.

There are also delightful sellers who don’t seem to mind my terrible written French and who go to the post office to check par avion prices for me.

So as I don’t currently have a holiday scheduled to French France I am holidaying in cyber space and thoroughly enjoying it. Everything sounds chicer on ebay France ‘Achat Immediat’ rolls of the tongue in the way ‘buy it now’ doesn’t. I also suspect it will feel more sophisticated receiving parcels of goodies from over the moody seas than from here.

Vicki- do! it's fun- and your French is obviously a lot better than mine!

Sweetpeaknits, thanks for stopping by.

Leeann- I can't believe I didn't think about it before. I'm waiting for my air mail packages as we speak!

La Maison- do, I only really searched for perfume and accesories this time but I imagine the home stuff might be amazing
