Paris: Blueprint Style

• 13 August 2008

Before the always-missed Blueprint went out of business, I photocopied a small one-page write-up on unique shopping experiences in Paris*. I only hit a few of the shops (when with kids, shopping is extremely limited), but loved them both.

First of, the acclaimed E. Dehrillin. A cook's heaven if you can manage your way through the dim hallways lined with pans of all shapes and sizes. I bought a few mini springform pans so I can make individual cheesecakes sometime.



Papier+ was next up and it did not disappoint. Beautiful colors, products, binders, papers, you name it. I was in heaven until I figured out how much everything cost in US dollars. But, if you are looking for a simple, colorful binder worthy of your coffee table, this is the place. If I was an artist, I'd invest in their chunky colored pencils offered in several delicious hues. So pretty. The service was great too, which isn't always the case in Paris. Papier+ is also in a great location--as in close to the Seine, the metro, and other places you'll want to hit while in town (Berthillon to name just one).




I really do miss you Blueprint. But since I'm trying to be more of a glass-half-full-kinda-girl, I'm going to declare how happy I was to have you for a little while :)

* if you are heading to Paris soon and want a copy of Blueprint's recommendations, email me and I'll mail you a copy once I arrive home.

  2. Sounds like you are having a great time! I think I saw Paula Deen go to that kitchen store on her show once. Of course she bought everything...
