• One of my favourite… stationery shops

I read about Paperchase in London on several blogs, and had the opportunity to visit one last year. Then I was visiting London with my 6 year old nephew, so couldn’t browse very long in the shop. This year I got a second chance when I was in London with Eline. Oh boy I think […]

• Entr√©e des Fournisseurs


Right next to HOME Autour du Monde, Rue des Francs Bourgeois¬†8, you can find the most yummy haberdashery store I have ever visited. The shop is mostly full with buttons and ribbon, but they also sell Liberty fabric, wool felt and patterns. I spent a fortune on French ribbons, I loved them and I now […]

I visited their shop on Rue des Francs Bourgeois¬†8, which they call their concept store. The street Rue des Francs Bourgeois is worth visiting all by itself, […]
