Why Are 30 People in Line in Paris??

When people line up in Paris, in the cold, you know something good awaits!

Another shop, Another line!

In Marais, near Bastille, the falafel sandwich rule!

You must have a fork.. And a big appetite.
Overflowing with delicious falafel,
roasted eggplant, tomatoes, slaw,
And more.. Topped with hummus and your choice of sauces.
I went for the works!
Pita.. Oh my, delicious soft pita!

And all for the price of a McDonald hamburger...

Have French Humor With Your Coffee

French artist, Alice Lothon, works magic in her atelier in Montmartre, Paris.

Her cafe au lait bowls with their nose and lips are like magic masks...

Giving you a new identity with each sip!

Do you prefer your coffee in cups?

Each one is different...delicate beauty for the woman, or strong masculine.

Choose a mask like the carnival in Venice...

A size for everyone!
Start your day with a smile!

Create Your Shoes in Paris!

I have rented an apartment in Montmartre, Paris during this 4 week buying trip for designers and shops.

Wandering the Montmartre shops at the end of my day... I stumbled on a shop that allows you to create your shoes!!

Suede choices!

Leather choices... Mix and match

Sheets of soft leather ...

You select a style, choice of leathers, they determine your size.., and 4-5 weeks later Voila!
About $200-$250.

Molds for the construction...

Or... Create a handbag!
The leather was soft and divine!

L'Atelier in Montmartre!
