Normally I zip over to Monsieur Google and try and find a nifty French phrase for my title, but this collection from the QUIRKY, Tombées du Camion left me unsure. Maybe some of my French speakers can help me out.

Tombées du Camion has several shops around Paris.  In 2011, Mary, Peter and I tracked down the original shop in Montmartre. As a photographer, it's a delight. It's just chock full of an odd but very orderly collection of vintage memorabilia, doll heads, print shop letters, vintage ties, you get the idea. If you visit the Marché aux Puces you can stroll through their stalls there. Visit their website for other locations.

It looks like some of it's inspired by the Mona Lisa.

Oh, I think I'd like this spot!
