It’s not often that I write about something I know nothing about but here it is Les Puces du Design Swiss Edition starting this Friday in Morges (April 29-May 1). I am not a vintage clothing or accessory fan but what caught my eye are some of the furniture shops that will be present. Since I lean toward the simple lines of Swedish and Swiss German furniture, vintage furniture seems like it should excite me too. Furthermore, one can expect more color in the 1950s designs I have come across.

By train, Morges is only 25 minutes away from Geneva, costing CHF 18.20 round trip with a demi tariff. The expo is right there in the train station. Entrance to the Puces is another CHF 10.00. Of course you will have the extra expense at the food court where you will find some of Geneva’s food trucks present: the Hamburger Foundation, Debbie’s Kitchen and A Gentleman’s Lobster. Opening times and transportation information can be found here.

I didn’t think I would be able to go because of my Service Dog in Training but guess what? Dogs are welcome as long as they are well behaved and potty trained!
