Shopping in Paris

Overview

Quote:
I had a wild idea to go to Paris for my birthday weekend! I knew that time was going to be precious, so I wanted to do and see as much as possible. I hired Rebecca from Chic Shopping in Paris.

She was able to keep an eye out for what I was looking for and was able to take me to the best stores.Quick Tips: Rebecca took me to the outlet mall, LaVallee, in the outskirts of Paris for a great afternoon of shopping.

This is the BEST hot chocolate in all of Paris! They serve you a pitcher of pure hot chocolate and a bowl of sweetened heavy whipped cream that you blend together in your cup! Oh my! This is a must in Paris! Try to go before teatime around 3pm!

Montparnasse Artist Market

Attraction | "Montparnesse artist market"

I have been to see the artists at Sacre Coure and they were fine, but I wanted less touristy-type art. This is what I found at the artist market in Montparnesse. It is open on Sundays from 10am to early afternoon. There were 50 artists there the day I went and I was able to see some interesting sculptures, paintings, etchings, and jewelry.
