I love shopping in Marrakech

I already showed lots of pictures from my trip in Morocco, but still no one of my purchases. This post is gonna fill that gap! ;)
Almost all of my findings come from the souks of Marrakesh's Medina. Souks are a great and colorful bazaar full of any kind of objects. I have not been attracted by clothes, but I found nice necklaces:

Je vous ai déjà montré plein de photos de mon voyage au Maroc, mais pas de mes achats. Ce post va donc combler ce vide! ;)
La quasi-totalité de mes trouvailles vient des souks de la médina de Marrakech. Les souks sont un bazar magnifique et coloré, qui regorge de toute sorte d'objets. Je n'ai pas été attirée par les vêtements, mais j'ai trouvé de jolis colliers:

Cute things for home. Yet, I love having my place filled with travel souvenirs, plus we were moving in our new place when we went to Morocco, so it was just the perfect timing. :)
A big plate, we use as a fruit basket:

De chouettes objets pour la maison. Déjà j'aime avoir chez moi des souvenirs de voyage, mais en plus quand nous sommes allés au Maroc on était en train de déménager, c'était donc tout simplement le timing parfait. :)
Une grande assiette, qu'on utilise comme corbeille à fruits:

Little, colorful bowls. Perfect for aperitif. Or ice-cream.

De petites coupelles colorées. Parfaites pour servir l'apéro. Ou de la glace.

A silver mirror. I wanted to put it in the bathroom, but it actually fits nowhere in there. :/

Un miroir en argent. Je voulais le mettre dans la salle de bain, mais en fait il va nulle part le dedans. :/

A small tajine plate. It's nice to put little sugars in it and to use it as a sugar bowl when one takes coffee for instance.

Un petit plat à tajine. C'est sympa de mettre de petits sucres dedans et l'utiliser comme sucrier quand on prend le café par exemple.

And…bags - yes, I did not have enough! ;)
The bags come from Birkemeyer Gallery (several stores in the modern city), except for the multicolored one that I found in the souks. Birkemeyer is a shop where you can find plenty of leather goods of high quality and made ​​in very good leather. It's a bit like entering Ali Baba cave. I must admit, this was the superficial moment of the trip. Especially that in the store there are only European women buying lots of bags; compared to Europe, prices are reasonable, but at the same time it's quite disturbing as for a local pay these objects are still exorbitantly overpriced ...

Et... des sacs – oui, j'en avais pas assez! ;)
Les sacs viennent de la Galerie Birkemeyer (plusieurs magasins dans la ville nouvelle), sauf le sac multicolore, que j'ai trouvé dans les souks. Birkemeyer est une boutique où l'on trouve plein d'articles de maroquinerie de très bonne qualité et réalisés dans un très bon cuir. C'est un peu comme entrer dans la caverne d'Ali Baba. J'avoue, c'était le moment superficiel du voyage. Surtout que dans le magasin il y a que des européennes qui achètent plein de sacs; les prix par rapport à l'Europe sont raisonnables, mais c'est quand même assez dérangeant car pour un salaire local ces objets restent hors de prix…
