Shopping in Libourne France

As I mentioned yesterday, we spent most of the day in St. Emilion before finishing the afternoon wandering around and shopping in Libourne France. It was still raining so we stuck predominately to the older part of town where the plaza was covered by lovely stone archways and where the streets were narrow enough to keep out some of the drizzle.

Covered Shopping: Back before shopping malls, these covered walkways would have protected the shoppers from the elements, both hot and cold. On this day they were protecting us from the wet. I am forever amazed when I am surrounded by architecture that is from any time before 1900. The longer something or someplace was built and inhabited before 1900 the more amazed I become when thinking of all the living and life that has occurred there before me. It’s just so cool to be surrounded be buildings that have been around for many hundreds of years.

Chocolate Shoes: These are a few of my favourite things! Chocolate AND shoes! I had to get a picture to share with you all. Surprisingly, this was one pair of shoes I managed not to buy while away. Although the fact that they were one of my favourite colours and one of my favourite flavours mad them hard to pass up!

In the lead up to Halloween, many of the chocolate shops had all kinds of glorious Halloween themed confections but this was the only chocolate shop I saw that had shoes.

My purchases in Libourne – October 2012

My Purchases: While wandering through the streets of Libourne we went into a cute little accessory shop. It wasn’t like some of the other places I had seen where the costume jewelry was cheaply made and inexpensive to buy. This one was a little nicer. I ended up buying myself this scarf with browns and turquoise and the silver bracelet with brown beads and charms. I also found a lovely necklace that I purchased for my dear friend Sarah for her birthday. Sorry I didn’t get a pic of it before giving it to Sarah. I’ll see if she’ll model it for us some time. Maybe when I tell you the story of how Sarah got her new name!

That’s it for shopping in Libourne France. Short and sweet! Tomorrow we are back in Spain and I’ll tell you more about our dining experience at the fanciest bbq place in the world.
