Shopping at “Cap 3000″ for Sales (Les Soldes)

To take advantage of the (government regulated) twice-a-year sales (les soldes) in France, I recently went shopping (window and otherwise) at Cap 3000 shopping mall, located just west of the Nice airport in St. Laurent-du-Var.

There were a lot of shoppers, IMG_0001and it was interesting taking in all the various  window displays.

And of course, lunch was on the day’s menu (see below).

There isn’t an American-style food court, but rather, a few restaurants in the mall – popular, as indicated by the line of people waiting for a table. One even provided a nice bench for customers and, withbench efficiency in mind, passed out some menus to look at while waiting in line. I got one of the two last available “plat du jour“: veal with mushrooms, served with melt-in-your-mouth potatoes and courgette flan – delicieux!

So, what did I buy?  A few pairs of earrings, a small red handbag, a pair of leggings, and this tote to carry my laptop.  Happy Shopping!IMG_0031
