Shopping in Paris: Bonpoint

When I was staying in Paris last week, my friend Kassy had a list of places and stores that we must visit, and Bonpoint was one of them.

Located at 6 Rue De Tournon in Paris, on the premises of the 17th century Hotel de Brancas, the flagship Bonpoint concept store includes eight imaginatively decorated rooms, as well as a gorgeous cafe which has a courtyard that opens on sunny days.

Even if you don't have children, this store is well worth a look, just for the interior itself. Stunning white washed floorboards, whimsical chandeliers and mind blowing displays that really do leave you breathless! If you do have children, or are expecting, the store sells beautiful clothing for newborn up to around 12 year old, accessories, shoes, blankets, teddies, and also beautiful perfumes.

We took a break from baby shopping and shared a chocolate brownie and a generous slice of cheesecake in the store's cafe.

Of course I walked out the door with some very special purchases for my baby girl, due in June. The kind of pieces you hand down through generations! If you find yourself in Paris, be sure to visit Bonpoint, and allow yourself enough time to take it all in, it really is a truly amazing and special store to visit. I hear that there are also stores in other parts of Europe, and in Asia and the US.
