This boutique on the hip rue Keller is filled with colourfull items for home decoration and kids rooms. They sell a mix of French, Scandinavian and Japanese brands and they always have the best shop windows!! If you are not traveling to Paris anytime soon you can shop in their webshop and see a video impression of the shop here.

I think I already told you that rue Francois Miron is my favourite street in Paris, it's a street filled with lovely shops and a new one there is this shop Mandorla Palace. A shop full of poetic items to decorate a (kids) room. One of the designers who sells her work there is Olivia from Yumyum creations, she makes these pretty mobiles, don't you love that sweet umbrella with the bird on top! Other designers you can find there are Le coq en pate, Donna Wilson and Trousselier.

This shop is heaven, a Japanese bookstore in the middle of Paris. Here you can find all the japanese sewing and crafts books you want ( and afford) and they have also a great selection of magazines, stickers and stamp-making kits.

An other magical place in Paris ( for those who like textile crafts) la Droguerie, a shop filled with perfect wools, lots of pots full with beads, ribbons, applique and so much more. The shop is located at nr. 9 and 11 rue du Jour very near Les Halles. The shop is quite small and filled with plenty and is very popular and sometimes very busy . If you like a more open space but don't want to miss out on all these goodies you can visit la Droguerie in le Bon Marche at the top floor. If you are at le Bon Marche don't forget to go to the books department in the soutterain where they have a nice craft/sewing book collection.
* thanks again to Sonia who took these lovely pictures
If you like fabrics (liberty) , felt, nice patterns( citronelle), buttons and lots of ribbons you have to visit this place!! They have it all and perhaps even more... in the middle of the Marais very near to place des Voges(my favourite place in Paris)
*thanks to Sonia from the lovely blog Cozy Memories for letting me use her Paris shop photos!!
