Agnes B sale started today 40% off everything bar a small room with new a/w stock. Too keen and arrived 30 minutes before opening.

Coffee at Les Ponchettes in the Cours Saleya, waiting for the Agnes B shop to open. 2 euros an espresso.

Les Ponchettes on the Cours Saleya

While we were waiting it was interesting to see the local bobbies (who looked about fourteen and arrived on bikes - see their cycle helmets) shooing away an illegal trader from the Cours Saleya - you can see his bundle of fake handbags on the ground behind him:

May I see your licence to trade Sir

Came away from Agnes B empty-handed, what I wanted didn't come in my size, what came in my size didn't good good on me :-(

The sales seem to have started late this year, usually it is the end of June.

I will nip into town later to have a look.

OK, back from town, sales everywhere in a big way, Galeries Lafayette, Sephota etc

According to the Galeries Lafayette shop window, Sales start 8th July until 11th August 2009

Another new thing to note in Nice this summer - the wonderful Nespresso boutique (they don't call it a shop) has moved from Victor Hugo to a prime location on Place Massena, very handy for us. It occupies 2 floors, similar to the the flagship store in Paris and has a recycling unit for the capsules. Lovely café at the back for free coffee and chocolate for paying customers.
