Serendipity is the last, but certainly not the least, Paris shop I feature on my blog. This one was one of the first that appeared on my ‘must visit’ list. Clare, from the Lulu Carter blog, insisted I had to go there, but I was already convinced by the pictures of this shop she had put on her own blog.

As a funny coincidence the shop just opened their doors on our second day in Paris, at a new location, 81-83 Rue du Cherche-midi, that was just a five minutes walk from our hotel :-)

I was stunned by the carpet patchwork they made in their entrance, don’t you just love the idea?

    Serendipity is mijn favoriete woord, een van mijn favoriete hersenloze film en de naam van HET cafeetje waar ik nog ooit heen moet in New York.

    Nu moet ik ook nog naar die winkel.. Pfff! Zwaar leven! ;)
