Bastille Artists' Market?

Is the Saturday artists' market at Bastille something that is worthwhile going to visit?

Slowpokesf, thank you for you helpful and polite response. It's just what I asked for: an honest opinion of the market.

Just a little curious - KDKSAIL and travelnutty have either of you actually been to the market? I do think personal experience is what posters are really looking for as we can all google and read guide books.

It looks like somebody who has visited has now replied.

>>>Just a little curious - KDKSAIL... have...you actually been to the market? <<<

Actually I have been there with my wife (who has been an art teacher, talented painter and sculptor for decades)...years ago...and spoken to family, friends, and acquaintances who've also visited at various times. The caliber of art and artisanship on display varies ...it's relative quality or 'worth', a personal '..eye of the beholder..' judgement. But for the most part, a fair many of those who display here are 'serious' about their art or craft. Whether you, I or anyone else deems the work on display at this market '..worth it..', can only be determined by going themselves and making THEIR own judgements.

As for the possibility of market's web site and those of the participating individual artists' & artisans' not being 'representative' of the relative caliber of work available....there are more than ample independent reviews of this market available--Paris guides, media reports, internet forums, etc for anyone genuinely interested....unless they need to be told what they like.

Did the Bengals and Browns both lose today?

And so, KDK, why didn't you just say what you said in your last post in your first post? I don't understand?

What was the point of your nastiness and abuse? Amusement, perhaps? Odd way to get your jollies.
