These are the goods I picked up when we hit Paris on our trip and made our way to a concept shop called Merci. I had read about it on other blogs and knew I wanted to make a stop there at some point during our travels. I am such a sucker for packaging and I love the wording on the bags. It reminds me of Lululemon and their inspirational quotes on bags. I picked up a sweet little scarf to remind me of our trip. And the girls and I picked up simple journals to fill with things we picked up on our trip. The little red thread and Merci charm has yet to have purpose but really ... does it need one?
This is the courtyard out front. I was a little disappointed the car wasn't all jacked up with a display like the ones I have seen before (see below). The little library behind Scott in the picture is a charming lunch spot.
These pictures provided the inspiration I needed to put this shop on my to-go list. I first saw a look into Merci through decor8 here. And found other stories from Les Carnets du Design and Ella Georgia.
The linen pillows, duvet covers, napkins and aprons are that rough, rustic linen that I love. If I could have, I definitely would have brought a bunch home but we travelled with carry on bags. Pretty good for a bunch of girls don't you think ? Scott doesn't know how lucky he is...we could have travelled like the car bottom right.
