With colette Carnaval as the perfect backdrop, 2012 edition of Solemart Paris got underway a little over a week ago.

But there were moments that even the large circus tent could not accommodate all who came to visit as a record number of visitors descended on the event. The deal making got hot and heavy right from the start as many bargain hunters sought exclusives not available elsewhere. But one odd spectacle of the event was the lack of any Foamposites despite the riotous craze over them this side of the Atlantic. Maybe next year…
