At the big market... continued


Say... would you buy your bed at the market?

Well, CQ, I might buy a bed at an outdoor market, but I'd check to make sure it wasn't damp or have bedbugs! Do the sellers deliver such things?

Fascinating!

What do they do if it rains?

Bob Crowe said...

Truly strange. I can see one of Dali's languid figures draped over the edge of one of these. Would I buy one? Lots of questions to ask, like the three bears demanded of Goldilocks: who's been sleeping in my bed?

Petrea said...

I wouldn't. But I like seeing those pretty buildings in the background.

raf said...

Hmmm....I would have to sleep on it!

Arnaud said...

Non, ca ne me viendrai pas a l'esprit d'acheter mon lit au marché ... mais c'est vrai qu'on y voit tres souvent des literies a vendre, comme quoi ca doit bien se vendre quand meme .... ??

Olivier said...

non, il ne rentre pas dans mon petit panier en osier ;o))

En réponse a ton passage, non je ne suis pas reporter, je travaille dans l'informatique.

Catherine said...

Non. Et pourtant, on ne se pose pas la question quand on va à l'hotel ! Et c'est pire quand on y réfléchi bien.

I'm afraid I wouldn't. I've heard too many stories about bedbugs!

Fio said...

Good idea for tired tourists ;-)))

Cergie said...

Je ne pense pas / la qualité.
Ceci dit j'ai acheté une table dans un marché dans l'est de la France qu'on nous a livrée et lorsque nous habitions dans le nord, j'ai vu des lunettes sur un étal. Et des gens qui les essayaient (des lunettes usagées)...

Dusty Lens said...

I'm not so sure. But I may be enticed to take a nap on one under the warmth of the sun and fresh outdoor air.

chez nous aussi les matelas sont à vendre au marché je me suis toujours demandé qui pouvait en acheter

Pas moi j'aurai bien trop peur qu'à force d'être exposé ils perdent de leurs performances

Et lorsqu'un matelas n'est plus performant ceux qui l'utilisent non plus

Nancy said...

Why not!

JM said...

Very funny! Have you tried them? :-)

Clueless in Boston said...

I suppose since they have them on display out of doors people must buy them, but I don't think I would. Must be pretty convenient for the street trade though.

Cezar and Léia said...

I don't think so ! But, I have seen a kind of it here in Joinville ( Brazil ),but it was only "matelas"!

About a third of our life we are between the sheets. Allow yourself the best mattress you can find.

Steffe said...

Ha, probably not, but if I were tired I guess I could rest there for a while!

Becky said...

Doubtful! But it's an intriguing idea, I must say!
