Franprix - Paris, France

So, I was in Paris a number of weeks back, and even though I was working really hard I managed to get a flour photo. At the time it looked fine, but once loaded on to the computer i see it is a little blurry. oh dear.

I hope you can understand that my French isn't as good as my English, so trying to explain to the Franprix's security guards that I have a flour site ... wasn't really an option. So I was in and out, without looking like i has stolen something - except a picture of the flour :)

Yes, I know. A pretty poor photo. But not a bad display. Pretty tidy, nice selection - even if I am not sure of the details of the selection.

The store was a inner city "metro" sized affair, so a large convenience store. So I was pretty pleased with the arrangement - even if it's a little disappointing to have the flour hidden behind the post, it surely shouldn't be obstructed like this.

    It's a pretty good range of types, sizes and from the picture, looks fairly well laid out. The big bags are on the bottom shelf - you don't often see sacks of flour like that in UK supermarkets - and the more specialist flours are out of reach of the kids.

    A point to note is that retreading and regrooving are completely different exercises. In a retread, a new layer of tread is attached to the tyre casing, whereas regrooving involves cutting into the tyre to deepen the worn-out tread.

    I know this arrangement isn't perfect (some facing-up is desperately needed) and there is a nasty gaping hole where more flour should be, but it's a move in the right direction!
