Rarissime


Located directly across the street from our apartment, Rarissime ( rare)  is the tiniest of shops nestled into the side of the beautiful Église Saint-Roch.  Founded in 1638, it's no larger than most American walk-in closets,  but is filled to the brim with antiques and collectibles.

18 rue St. Roch
75110 Paris

I could get lost in this store and never return. Gorgeous. This is my kind of shopping.

Loved looking in this window every morning and evening ... Is it time to go back to rue St. Roche? I think so!

I like that the place is well lit so you almost see everything inside.

Love the warm light, the cold stone, the bicycle (unlocked?), and the fact that this charming place has been here for almost 400 years!

Love seeing this shop... can I say it makes me homesick and that I miss it? Love seeing Monsieur's bicycle.
