I wish this was a post on the marche de l'aveyron

But you know, that would be too easy.
I just realized that the Fete d'Auvergne was actually last weekend, not this weekend. This is one amazing market, so amazing it is only once a year! The auvergnats invade Bercy for the weekend, selling traditional products and hosting cultural events and activities. I discovered this on accident a few years ago when a friend and I happened to stumble upon the blocks after blocks of everything auvergnat. My favorite stand was the aligot stand (mmmm...aligot...mmm). Well, you can be sure I won't miss it next year! And in the meantime I'll just have to make it out to la maison de l'aubrac (if it's still around) to satisfy my aligot craving.

oh wow ...that one on Etsy is so similar may even be the exact one Cher is wearing because it has one more pineapple on each side than mine does ...however, I don't think I paid more than $30 for mine ..but I just can't remember. It definitely wasn't over $50 though. Great find!!!! ..thanks for the link!

good to know - I guess I'll keep an eye out on ebay! Let me know if you are ever on this side of the Atlantic ;-)
