MERCI



Thank you, Merci, for having the installation of my dreams up when I came to visit.






I mean, look at this!!!




This fork is wearing a sweater!




Oh my GOD. Seriously, it was so beautiful.



And these spoons - pastel, dip-dyed heaven.



They also had three floors of just really nice, well selected stuff. Stationery, clothing, furniture, linens, etc. The home wares were amaaazing.




On my second last morning in Paris, I enjoyed dippy eggs in their Used Book Cafe (at this time, the dream installation had been traded in for something new - still cool, but not as good).




Gill and I also had a late lunch at Merci's Cinema Cafe on our first visit. The charcuterie plate was simple and delicious.


This shop was certainly one of the highlights of my trip - thanks to all who recommended I pay it a visit.

  3. I'm seriously overwhelmed by this post. There's so much rightclicksaving to do that I'm actually bookmarking it and coming back at some other time to save the pictures. Stendhal syndrome, for sure.

  14. danica and anna - unfortunately I forgot to write down the artists' names (I think it was a group). I will try to find out - I was too overwhelmed with the store to think about it.
