Maurice and I have made a quick trip into Paris for one week, mostly for work, and I was just in time for the famous sales called Soldes.
All the stores in Paris have sales twice a year. I’m not much of a shopper and I hate crowds but I got up early and went into two stores and found something to buy.
After taking photos for the catelogue for Lollipops-shoes and bags-I strolled down one of my favorite streets nearby, rue Montorgueil. It’s a cobble stoned, mostly pedestrian area, full of interesting and fun shops.
Look at this–you can grow lavender in Paris. This was up in a window on the second story.
This is a very well known shop on rue Montorguile. They have gourmet food to take home for meals and some of the best pastry I have ever had.
A couple of years ago the Queen of England made a visit to this street and stopped at Stoher’s. The owner had postcards made of the occasion-mostly of him with the Queen. I asked him if she was nice, he replied that she was, very nice.
I think this cake in the window is made of eclairs. Wouldn’t you love to have a piece?
