{Merci} wonderful concept shop in Paris

Monday 5 October 2009

I have discovered a new very special shop, well not personally just yet, my friend Nadya, who have just been in Paris brought me back some gifts from Merci last week, a hand painted cup and a poster, she explained me all about this new concept shop in Paris, that opened in early march this year. It is a big surface, more similar to a living space than a shop itself, created by the former owners of French kids top brand Bonpoint, Marie-France & Bernard Cohen. The space is spread trough out several floors, fill with the most exquisites things you can think of, including vintage furniture, clothing, jewellery, books, flowers, etc….But the best thing about Merci is that all profits after breaking even, go to operate a co-op for young women, in Madagascar, so merci for creating such a magical place and help to develop work and training in not so developed parts of this planet.
