Tombées du Camion
In the little village where I grew up lived a woman who collected all kind of stuff. Her whole house was filled with her collections cause she could't threw away anything. She went so far she couldn't even walk normally through her house anymore cause of the clutter which was everywhere. It was even piling up against her windows! When I was a child my parents said to me I looked like her cause I liked to collect everything and I really had problems with throwing away things as well. I haven't changed much since but in contrary to that woman from my village I can still walk through my house normally (most of the times). When I was in Paris I visited this little store called Tombées du Camion (which I found through Pia Jane's book Made by Hand: Paris). It's a little shop filled with all kind of collections: Litlle dolls, parts of dolls, buttons, little boxes: I thought I went crazy: All these beautiful things together! I couldn't stop taking photos.. When you go to Paris, go and take a look at this beautiful shop. It was only until I got home I found out there were more them in Paris. Next time I'm there I'm definitely gonna visit them all. Don't forget to take a look at their beautiful website for more photos and the adresses as well..
