Merci Merci Merci…..

is a fabulous shop in the 3rd arrondissement ..The store is located at 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais,  Métro: Saint-Sebastian Froissart, Line 8.  I read about this fab shop a few weeks before my first trip to Paris, and I thought it was in the Marais area, tried to find it back then , so this time I went hunting.

The shop  has a little cafe on the front, where you can sit and read, or purchase a second hand book from them , a restaurant is also available for you..  

I am so pleased I went to find it, as it made me go into another area not walked, more photos to follow!!

  5. Bonjour Anne,

    Now I missed this one ! I may go back to see all this. I love little shops and this looks delish.

    Maybe one day in the future ( that I hope is not too faraway), we could visit it "entre amies" or between friends.

    XXOO

  6. Anne, this shop is very much like a shop I used to frequent in Hamburg called Cucinaria. You brought back wonderful memories for me. It was located in a fabulous loft/ old factory space.

    Traveling to different places can be such an eye opener, can't it! It is always inspirational.

  8. Just a warning to Barbara -- it is in no way a "little" shop!! It's massive, over two or three floors .. .it's really quite something. I forget the exact story, but it was founded by the lady who created the chic French children's clothing shops Bonpoint (the lady also happens to be the sister of the late Annick Goutal). So they are able to put any profits back to charity. It's a pretty wild place and Anne's photos show it to perfection!
