Please tell us if you are navigating the City alone or will you be joining a group?

I have heard that there is a little shop called Collette...very famous for having new and wonderful things yet discovered by the rest of the world!

Have fun!

Congratulations - How I wish I could go as well! Just wander and wander and wander. Eat some bread, sip a kir, revel in your fabulosity.

* hot chocolate at Angelina's
* walk through the Tuilerie gardens
* walk around the Marais on a Sunday
* sit at a cafe on the rue du buci (or anywhere!) and discreetly take pictures of people
* Sacre Couer at sunset looking out over the city
*buy toile fabric at one of the better fabric stores in Montmartre (Reine)
*bring home goodies from Le Grand Epicierie (near Le Bon Marche department store)
*Musee d'Orsay and eat lunch there too
*don't miss Les Puces de Paris Saint-Ouen (flea market) for prints
*Puces Vanves is really a better flea market for finding affordable items
*bring home a purse from B. Biberon & Fils (Maroquinerie Saint-Honore) 334, rue St. Honore
* make sure to stop at Pharmacie Fouhety (26, rue du Four) for drugstore skin care
*take RER train to Versailles, rent golf cart to drive around - it's a blast

Have a great time in Paris! I just returned from there on 3/11. A must see is the Dries Van Noten boutique. The store was designed in "paris apartment" style and is absolutely stunning. If you go please take pics and let me know what you think!

Fleas Fleas Fleas!
get Aladin magazine for brocantes and attic sales (vide greniers) on the streets of the city. They're listed by the day.
Le Fumoir is a great restaurant. Have the time of your life!
