haggle before they cut because it wouldn't be honest to haggle once you made them cut (or maybe it's just my weird sense of logic). tout est negotiable en europe, aux states c'est tres different...j'habite a hawaii en ce moment et a part walmart, il n'y a pas vraiment grand chose.

I didn't mean haggling a Saint-Pierre, since it's such a huge place I don't think the shop assistants are allowed to haggle (and indeed would have any interest in it). I meant the little shops all around. Just start saying you've seen the same fabric cheaper across the street, and they'll be offering a better price.  Wink

Great!  That'll be another field trip - teaching the kids to haggle!  I'm giggling just thinking about it.

I just can't wait to come home, I've been in America for way too long. Are any of you guys living in or near Paris? Just so that I can't allow myself to be lonely and without any crafty friends!

When do you move back to Paris? 

I always come back from visiting the States with a LOADED suitcase.  If you've found anything you really like in the States make sure you buy plenty.  And if you find you have extra room let me know Wink

Good luck with your move!

I'm coming back in a few weeks. As for the suitcase, I don't think I ever had any place in a suitcase, it just never happens with me... Huh another mystery in the world!

Salut,

Just to let you know :if you want stuff from the US/canada, there's a swap here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=41271.0 where they are looking for people living outside of the US. (it's called the "my country doesn't have that" swap..)

Hello,
My name is Véronique, I am French and I live in Provence.

I used to live in Paris for 6 years, I know a bunch of crafty shops, especially for fabrics. I think the cheapest ones are those called Toto, there are about 10 or 12 adresses in Paris, and some others in big towns like Rouen, Bordeaux, Marseille...

I'm afraid that you, fellow american crafters, will find our arts and crafts shop small and awfully expensive  Undecided
