Ever since the shop windows shifted to summer, I have been ‘seaing’ blue everywhere. Whether it’s Herve Chapelier’s durable; practical; for the most part, washable; owned some-of-mine for what seems like since I was born! BAGS. (https://www.hervechapelier.com) or Groom located at #14 Rue du Cherche-Midi or one of the multiple ‘The Shop around the Corner’ stores near my apartment (with none of them being a bookstore like the one Meg Ryan owned in ‘You’ve Got Mail’)…
And here is one just a block away: Bellerose, at 3 Rue Jacob, is a ‘must look’…
And, yet another in my neighborhood, as I can do a ‘walk-through, entering from one door (8 Rue de l’Abbaye) and coming out another (rue de Furstemberg) with the excuse of saving me some steps when I am ‘homeward bound’. But, I really do it because it affords me a tour through the latest goods at the Belgian-based shop, Flamant (http://www.flamant.com/flamant/). Being an interior designer, I just can’t resist.
A few more steps away from ‘home’, Sabre (https://www.sabre.fr) always commands a peek too and gives me the advantage of adding to my home collection more of their products:
And finally, we can actually be off to the SEA with just a stop at Petit Bateau (I used to buy my daughter’s cotton T-shirts here and it is still continues to also be a source for T-shirts in women’s sizes or some beach clothes like these:
Another neighborhood stop to help fill up a picnic basket to take along: at the Breton family cannery shop (They’ve been canning ‘the sea’ since 1932):
And, why not some ‘fishy’ chocolates to also take along to the sea!
On to ‘seaing’ blue at the SEA!
