For the first time in history, pawn shops in Paris that normally only accept antique family heirlooms are accepting wine. According to experts, the Credit Municipal de Paris is located in a building that â€œhappens to have 18th century cellars below ground, providing the perfect storage area for the pawned wine.â€ Recently, a bottle of Domaine de la Romanee Conti was hocked for â‚¬5,000.
Ooh La La! I'm ready to dust off that bottle of Dom Perignon 1959 that I've have been hording since Jackie Kennedy was First Lady and run off to Paris to see what the market will bare. It will probably cover my airfare and a trip to the Louvre.
