Hello everyone, I posted this on another forum but figured some people might get a kick out of it over here as well... I go to roughly two markets per week and this is the best stuff from the past couple of months... Aside from the first three glasses, everything else was a little over-priced in my opinion (At least in relation to prices you can find elsewhere from more reliable sources).... Anyway, hope you enjoy...

Not really absinthe related but interesting all the same...

... These were really under-priced so I was pretty happy =)

Hell boy, if I hadn't insisted you would not have bought this damn Maison Arthaud :) But yeah, two bargains, two beautiful spoons, well done (as a matter of fact I found a Frenay recently too, therefore I have a spare :) )
Absinthe makes me a different man. Why shouldn't he also have his two glasses ?
Unless Absomphe-related, if it's about old things, you can ask me

Ouaip! Definitely thanks to you Clément :worshippy: ... Like a total n00b I had to text Clément a picture and ask if 20 euros was worth it for a Maison Arthaud (I was also unsure of it's authenticity because of the price... But I got it verified later)...

Precious would like that also. Hmm, perhaps a little planning?
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.
