A shop to suit some of my favourite friends ...

 We are staying in an apartment on rue des Rosiers right slam bang in the heart of the lively Marais district which is constantly abuzz with locals and visitors alike.
 Just around the corner is a fabulous shop that makes me think of  Jenny, Judy, Anna, Susan and other dear friends each time I pass by.

 After enjoying the window displays for the first two weeks, Wendy and I decided the time was right for a touch of retail therapy and so, in we went!

 






We were helped by Pascale who was born and raised on the rue Vielle du Temple and has been at "Ala Bonne Renommee"for the past 26 years.

                                     Vibrant colours and ethnic textiles.





Traditional garments, but with an edge ...

                              Interesting colours and designs ...




   Would have liked the china, but just not practical to pack in the suitcase !



We both managed to purchase a few pieces and feel good about it.

Hope you will visit here on your next Paris shopping trip !
