Bonpoint






Have you heard of Bonpoint?  The Famous French Children’s Store.  I hadn’t, until my first trip to Paris.  I wandered upon this store and was lost in the beauty of it.  In fact, I had my husband video the store undercover from his coat.  I don’t think they would have been keen on our filming, etc.  But I just could not get past all of the pretty and dreamy imagination.  I adored that there was a little rustic house (wasn’t gold at the time as I read that was for Christmas time) in the middle of the store that you could walk in.  Why can’t we have stores like this?

    WoW!!! How cool would it be to have a kids b-day party in such a place like this. It all looks so magical and FUN. I have another giveaway you would be interested in. Check it out: Pink Toile.

    funny thing…it seems that the french are more playful and creative than we are when it comes to children.
    only when i am in paris would i ever wonder into a children's toy store.
    in fact, i have bought myself toys in paris.
    have a nice weekend

    What a gorgeous store. That Vespa and matching camper has my name on it! Have you seen a new dept store in Paris called "Merci". It's divine, and I'm sure you would just love it. Meredith xo.

    What a beautiful store… I would love to go – to the store, and to Paris!

    Liked your hidden camera idea. I tried to take some pictures of pink shoes the other day… didn't go so well. Read about it at:
