merci store in parisNovember 19, 2012
Anyone care to escape with me to Paris
for a little window shopping???
Because while visiting a few weeks back,
I snapped a zillion pictures for us to enjoy
and would love some company...first stop:
Step through Merci's charmingly
private courtyard entrance and prepare
for enchantment...and the sweet knowledge
that profits from Merci go to charities.
What can we buy here?
Like so many interesting Paris shops,
Merci offers quite the eclectic mix...things for
your home, your wardrobe, your mind, your soul.
The tiles surrounding the counter blew me away,
and my mind went straight to the thought that
I should immediately open a shop centered
on the vibe of this tin.
I'm a dreamer.
You know the type.
How charming is this cafe tucked away in
the shop?? So quiet and special and just
right for re-charging the batteries.
Audrey Hepburn corner.
This is not a thrift shop so I only left with a
super cute cookie stamp (leaves the impression
'merci' on the cookie) and a badge designed by
creative goddess Paola Navone...I'll wear it on
a denim jacket or tack it on a tote.

Can you spot me paying for my treasures?
We have more shopping to do, k?
And I think I'll give you some peeks
of our paris apartment next time, oui?
Peace to you right where you are.
