Samedi Signes - Bon!


By now you know how I love to visit Merci , every trip I make to Paris.  What many don't know about this store is that profits go back to a children's charity in Madagascar, hence the name.  One of my favorite spots is the downstairs area where you can find all kinds of hip household and garden items. There's also a neat little café overlooking their courtyard garden.  This trip, they'd used some of their terrific metal letters for the wall.  How apropos!

And on that note, may I wish you all al BON weekend!

J´adore Merci!!! I´ve been to the café in the bookshop but not yet to the lunchroom in the basement.

Alan, well let's see if I can explain here. HIP, mean cool, fun, funky. Household means items like plates, napkins, glasses and gadgets you use in your home. Peter bought some very cool placemats and napkins that come on a roll and you tear them off as you need them.
