Thanks for the notes, cigale! That Bastille charity shop sounds interesting. So does the music installation at the Orangerie.

Oooh, the 1000 buildings book looks interesting too. But I don't see the book you mentioned on that link?

Thanks, Cigale. I'll be there in 3 weeks, and planned to go to Orangerie. Maybe I'll go on Sat.
Or maybe not - it might be too crowded!

Mimi, making note of the "first charity shop" - our fine charity thrift shops in NYC are a way of life for many of us! Now I can extend that to Parigi next time I go.

I would love to have the Laduree bag with the French bulldog.

The New York Times just published a list of restaurant reco's in the Globespotters column by a man who is restaurant critic and former fashion writer.
