A couple of years ago I found some wonderful children's books in the tiny shop in the Palais de Tokyo (which is so worth a visit if you haven't seen the Dufy mural there).Congrats on AUDREY and have a great trip!
How exciting! I hope you have a fabulous time! I typically would find books in either the FNAC (in La Defense or by Saint Lazare), the BHV (which had a decent selection), or the Virgin store on the Champs Elysses (although it might not be still there?). I know most of these places are big department stores, but I found a real healthy selection!
wow! Thank you Deborah and Kelly so much for your swift responses and ideas (scribbling them down)...oooo I'm getting so excited!
Julia, I don't have a children's bookstore rec, but I do have an amazing one-of-a-kind, handmade, old-fashioned children's toy store to recommend. It's called Tumbleweed. It's teeny tiny and it is perfect. The toys are remarkable. Here is their website:http://www.tumbleweedparis.com/home.htmlI can only imagine that it would be full of inspiring things for an artist like you!
Ohhhhh those heart tatoo slippers...I would wear those each and every day if I were child-sized
Oh you are kidding! That sounds amazing. How long will you be there?
Hey Sarah lady! We're there for a week-a lot to see since we've both never been.
Oooh! A must is Shakespeare & Co. Left Bank, by Notre Dame. Eat a nutella crêpe for me! :)
Julia, it was so nice meeting you at Amanda's show! She has spoken of you often, so it was really nice to finally get to meet you!I hope you have a wonderful time in Paris! Amanda is also so excited to be going!Take care,Donna
I am always full of ideas for dining and shopping if you need any advice along those lines. I also just picked up a copy of Ines de la Fressange's (former model and designer at Vivier) La Parisienne. About Parisian style, how it is created, and where you can find it in Paris (shops, dining, hotels etc). She creates and includes adorable illustrations that you would appreciate;)
