3. Attending the annual Brunch with 
The Antique Diva at the Puce antique market...
last year this was a highlight of our trip, sipping champagne in the gorgeous, historic antique market.  Learning about how the market works, meeting the exhibitors and hearing from Toma and the industry about antiques while collaborating with many in our industry.

4. A visit behind the scenes to Hermes' Atelier...need I say more?!  This is literally a dream I have had since watching a television documentary 20 years ago about how these hand bags are meticulously made, one by one and all by hand.
