La Mercerie Parisienne


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 favourite sewing patterns by Citronille. The shop just launched a new website making it even easier to get hold of all the bits and pieces I think I actually need.

If you ever are in the neighbourhood, a browse around the shop is very worth it, but the website is a close second.

PS I order my children’s name tags from this place and they are the cutest!

My favorite Mercerie in Paris is a shop name La Droguerie. My mum used to go there when I was a child. It’s some kind a institution. It’s a very small place full of pearls, wools and ribbons. They’ve got a lot of patterns for babies and children. They have no eshop but the place is amazing.

Thanks so much for this post! We are heading to Paris in a few weeks and looking forward to investigating some new places. I lived in Paris many years ago, and love finding new treasures in the city! X Catriona

I love this (web)shop! The patterns from Citronille are great, I know. Never seen so many though, definitely I’m going to order some. Thanks, Emily!

Hi – love the name tags! Do you know if one has to sew them on each item of clothing ?

They have sets where they need to be sewn on but they also have some that can be ironed on.
