Paris is a lot of things to a lot of travelers, but most everyone can agree that the city's shopping is unparalleled — a reflection of the effortless good taste Parisians are known for. And for that very reason, you wont finding us stocking up on typical souvenirs, like T-shirts and mini Eiffel Towers. We're too busy shopping Merci, a modern general store, for custom charm bracelets; L'Officine Universelle Buly for luxurious soaps and scented matches; and E.Dehillerin for classic French cookware. These are some of our favorite Parisian finds, available locally and online.
