Argenton Sur Creuse

Argenton Sur Creuse from what I read is a “lively market town situated on the banks of river Creuse” in Central France. It has historic sites dating back to the middle ages with cobblestone paths, picturesque medieval houses and quaint little shops. It was known in the golden ages for its fashion industry, examples of which may be found at the “Musée de la Chemiserie et de l’élégance masculine” whew! or simply, the Shirt Museum. I would love to see what kind of fashion and real clothing they have during that time!

Sounds really lovely to visit someday! 🙂

Notice the stamp? Is that one of the biggest stamps you’ve seen or what?! (Thank you very much Sheila. It took me awhile to post here but I found my way eventually!)
