Boutiques Parisiennes Series - Au Passe-Partout


Tucked away in the Marais, is an interesting little shop specializing in antique keys, corkscrews, knives, and locks. The owner, M. Mark Feldman is a bit of an expert and has written a book on keys that he proudly showed me.  This is one of those tiny little specialty shops that make Paris such a delightful place to wander and discover.

There is something special about a ring of old keys.

Oh V! I have been missing a key to a bookcase door for the past 29 years. You couldn't get that clutch of keys sent over here could you?

I like old big keys very much! They have such an history, and they're always beautiful!This book must be very interesting!

Well now I'm really curious as to what a whole book on keys might have to say...

I love the little shops like that - don't find them out here.

Now, THIS is a little store that I would enjoy seeing. On the list for the next time I go to Paris.

And I bent the key to my cedar chest. Maybe ce gentil monsieur can help me out. (I like a guy who can pull off a scarf AND the color pink! He looks like a lovely man.)
