Shopping at Marin Montagut, 48, rue Madame


Today is the Big Day. Toute Paris opens up! But Monday I got in on the ground floor🤸🏾‍♀️ as I was walking through the parc 

Sunny 48, rue Madame in the 6th

I spotted Marin Montagut shop and an open doorway. I’ve been meaning to visit since they opened.

Look! Don’t I need this pigeon’s dolls house thing for my guys🐦?

The Breakfast Club waits in the rain sometimes, poor guys, till I give them their oatmeal. And its getting earlier everyday...😳

(They were just airing the shop out after months of being closed up tight). 

Never mind. I sashayed inside.

They were very busy arranging things, hanging things, dusting things like all Paris is this week for the Big Opening !!

I begged them on bended knee, “Please just 2 minutes🙏 I won’t touch anything🙏 Just some closeups and I’m outta here. 

Just 5 minutes🙏Less! I promise🙏 La la la la I put my bag down to prove I was serious, which could so easily break many of their treasures. 

And aren’t they the best treasures ever? The curiosity shop you’ve been dreaming of. Montagut has a shop inside Le Bon Marché but this is so much better. Do come visit when you’re back.

 is pretty brilliant at everything. Not just designing interior decor. Remember those adorable shopping video’s with Ines de la Fressange? He drew and filmed them, plus started that map series.

Thank you Nanci for the ever so nice review in my shop 👏👏

Alison asked if I had a Paris park map with those nice green chairs?

I do and it goes perfectly with the 🌸 cherry blossom map don’t ya think? 
These berries look like blossoms no? 🌸🌸🐻🍓🤸🏾‍♀️
