Inside Look: Paris' Merci

• 17 December 2009

I recently stumbled upon some iPhone images I took inside Merci this past September. What an interesting experience that was...I rented a car (scored a hybrid!) and drove up to Paris with my 2 and 4-year-old children on La Maisonnette business. Looking back, I can't believe I thought I could actually get anything done with the little munchkins--just driving and parking in Paris can be headache enough, but add in two little ones and that's C-R-A-Z-Y. Luckily, my sweet friend, Natasha, who lives just outside Paris, offered to tend my kids for a day so I could double park my way around Paris and do what I drove up to do. What a gem! I thank her for even having a spare moment to snap a few pictures.

Anyway, after discovering an article about Merci in one of my French magazines, I knew another post on the store was in order--the magazine featured a massive spread on the shop and included lots of fun images for your viewing pleasure. I hope these images satiate your curiosity and give you a better idea of what Merci is all about. When I discovered that 100% of the proceeds are donated to a charity in Madasgascar, I was even more endeared. How refreshing that anyone does that anymore, right?

all images with print are from Marie Claire Maison; the rest I took with my phone

  3. Hey Stephanie, so fun to see your photos and post! It was a treat to play with your great kids, and to tag along with you the day before! Truly, you were a trooper and we all appreciate the wonderful corners of Paris that you share with us so beautifully!

  4. More about MERCI :-) I love this shop and went to visit it back in Aug/Sept when I was on holiday in Paris...I love Paris and have a few wonderful friends living there.

  5. I read all through your blog as my husband and I prepared for our Spring Break trip to Paris. We added Merci to our list and it was hands down the best shop we visited in city. I love their style and the philosophy of the store. Thanks so much for bringing it to our attention!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
