Yesterday, les soldes started in France. My mom went with the intention of shopping for herself and for my son, but ended up only getting clothing for my son, as it was too crazy: Wednesdays are days off school, so many people take that day off as well to be with their children. At one point, my mom says she was embushed by 5 strollers, but she still managed to reach for a pair of black corduroy pants by stretching (thank goodness for her yoga classes) over a table covered with scarves, winter hats and gloves, all in a pile. She was prepared, had low heel shoes and wore a backpack-style handbag. are any of you planning to participate in the mÃªlÃe?
