This post is actually written for some of my favourite ladies, Courtney and Esther, who have a favourite shop here in Paris. They literally go there every time they come. In fact, I sometimes suspect that they might be visiting me just as an excuse to visit Merci, the fantastic concept shop which happens to be very close to my flat.
And now they might never come visit again, as Merci has (finally) started an international online shop, full of amazing linens, the Merci clothes line, wall paper, these cool picnic napkins and many other bits and pieces.
Merci was started by the same people who founded Bonpoint many moons ago. It actually functions as a very stylish charity shop: all the proceeds of the shop are invested in educational projects in Madagascar (but certainly does not look like any charity shop I have ever seen before). Hopefully the online Merci is not the end to a wonderful friendship 😉
Great, that’s sorted! Now I never have to travel to Paris ever again!!!
p.s. It really IS exciting that they now have an online shop!! I promise to still be your friend. It’s just that now I don’t have to ask you to run silly errands for me to Merci and then to the post office!!! xxx
Haha! You silly duck, of course Merci is not the only reason for our friendship. There’s also Bonton, Rose Bakery, Monoprix, Marché des Enfants Rouges, Bonpoit, …. 😉
(But it IS great news. Thanks for sharing! Although… I still prefer to visit the real Merci with one of my favourite ladies xxx)
What the what?? So exciting!! Also laughing at Court and Esther’s comments. Funny girls Xo
