3RD ARRONDISSEMENT
La Mercerie Parisienne
September 3, 2014
One of my favourite shops in Paris is not a shoe shop or a fancy food shop (though there are many). It is actually a beautiful, little haberdashery shop in the Marais: L'Entrée des Fournisseurs is full of ribbons, buttons, fabrics and wool, just like in the good old days. It also stocks some of my ...

If you have any spare time between the 3rd and 5th of June and happen to be in Paris, do check out the children's fair "Kids in the City" on rue Francs Bourgeois in the 3rd. The fair was put together by the lovely Estelle who also runs Nordinary -- one of my favourite webshops ...

New Bonton store
March 6, 2010
It is hard to believe but Merci, one of Paris' most fashionable concept stores has been out-trumped by a kid's store. Just a stone's throw away from Merci on the corner where the boulevard Beaumarchais turns into the boulevard Filles du Calvaire, Bonton has opened up a 800 M² new flagship shop. It is absolutely ...

Marché des Enfants Rouge
July 30, 2009
Courtney and her family were over in Paris visiting from London and we wandered around the North Marais, doing a bit of shopping, people watching and coffee drinking. It really reminded me about how much I love this little area. I want to write a thousand and one posts on all the lovely little places ...

Merci
March 17, 2009
It's been the talk of town. Merci, Paris' newest concept store opened its doors last week. When I visited it was so new, they were still finishing off the paintwork. Even if you are just in Paris for an afternoon, it is worth checking it out. A huge loft style space houses a florist, an ...

Le Marchand D'Etoiles
March 9, 2009
There is something really wholesome and comforting about putting your kids to bed in a nice, clean, and comfy-looking pyjama. I like to think it might help them get a restful night… The French label Marchand d'Etoiles (literally translated: the Merchant of Stars) is the champion of lovely, comfortable kid's nightclothes. And so they should ...

Pink Flamingo
January 29, 2009
My favourite pizza place in Paris goes by the original name of Pink Flamingo. The first outpost was out by the Canal St Martin, but a new venue has just opened, in the middle of the Marais. Why do I like it so much? The pizzas are great -- the Pink Flamingo crew has decided ...

Sweden in Paris
October 10, 2008
While the girls were in Paris this past weekend I dragged them to one of my favourite kid-friendly eateries in Paris, and I realised: I had not blogged about it yet! The café in the Centre Culturel Suedois, based in a Hotel Particuler on rue Payenne in the heart of the Marais, is a little ...
