“I often like to combine shopping with history and Paris is a great place for that,” Jennifer says. “Fortunately, there are still places to find true treasures, one-of-a-kind objects, and inspired purchases at any price that are unmistakably Parisian.” 

Jen’s tips in this article include: Avoid high expectations, Always use your “Bonjour” and “Merci” courtesies in stores and slow down and give in to the Parisian way of shopping.

And perhaps quoting Phoebe isn’t the typical way one might start a blog on modern-day news gathering processes, but if the shoe fits…wear it! Especially if it’s Manolo Blahnik. In today’s blog, The Antiques Diva has become The Business Diva!

Are you familiar with iReport? In a stunning example of how society is evolving and embracing technology and connectivity, CNN launched a user-driven content initiative two years ago called iReport. News media has always been a top-down channel of relaying information to the general public, but the iReport initiative completely inverts that traditional process.

The beauty of iReport is that CNN has effectively extended their news-gathering capabilities to nearly every corner in the world – all without having to employ an army of reporters. They now have access to intimate and time-sensitive information that they could never otherwise have had.

For example, without iReport, CNN might never have known about the DNN – the Diva News Network! After returning home tonight from a Decorative and Fine Arts Society meeting in The Hague, I sat down to check my emails, only to discover a mail from my friend Suzanne which read I just saw you on CNN!!! To my pleasant surprise, the Diva News Network video on Brussels was selected by CNN to appear on their homepage as a primary iReport listing! Visit the site today (who knows how long it will be posted!).

Thanks CNN!!

Diva News Network Video – Brussels – Place du Grand Sablon

Building on momentum from last week’s DNN Video The Hague, I decided to hit the streets again, diva style, in this special DNN episode on Brussels Place du Grand Sablon. This posh square boasts an upscale weekend antiques market every Saturday 9 am – 5pm and Sunday 9am – 1pm. Lining the square you’ll find lively cafes, chic designer shopping, interior stores and enough high-end antique boutiques to see why the Place du Grand Sablon is considered “THE” place to be for weekend Belgium entertainment. Join me as I share historical and tourist information and then delve deep inside the market to show you some of the best finds of the day!
