#12 Shopping Spree Vol.1 Paris

I never understood why people, when travelling, have a tendency to shop at places they already know (except when it’s much cheaper). Why would you go to a city like Paris and only go to Zara and H&M?

I’m from the South East of France, but I had the opportunity to spend 6 months in Paris last year for an internship. Consequently, I had a lot of time to discover the city (don’t worry, I didn’t spend my whole time shopping), and I had my favorites.

Here are two of them.

#2 Cool stuff on Etsy? Yes.

Etsy is one of the most popular e-commerce website.

At the same time, the same criticism is made about it, over and over again. Great things are hard to find and they are drowned is a sea of mediocrity, “whimsical”ness, and plain ugly stuff.

If you don’t believe me go there.

I’ve been rummaging endlessly for great finds, and here they are, our great Artisans.
