The tenth edition of the Emmaus Salon took place on Sunday June 14th 2009, at Porte de Versailles, Paris (see The 10th Emmaus Salon). This event, so awaited for, was an opportunity for the European and international groups to meet around an event with the colors of solidarity.
The magic of the Salon started long before June 14th during the months of preparation and was specially felt during the installment of the Salon that lasted from Friday morning to Saturday evening: a moment of intense work of course but also of exchanges between groups, animated discussions, encounters…
Gradually the Salon was built up, to give place to broad alleys lined with stand with thousand of colors and objects. Saturday evening, all of the participants gathered around long tables to share with a picnic-type meal their different experiences and expectations.
All that was missing was the visitors, who were very numerous to answer the calling for solidarity and socially-responsible shopping on Sunday June 14th since 9:30 am!
