I had been planning on investing in a little something for Chéri and I…but  I had not committed to anything yet. And then, I was innocently wandering down a lovely street in the Marais, my mind on things like home décor and an « apothicary style » dinning room… I was minding my own business, when this store just came up on… Read more →
