some more Paris
we walked by this shop and got a couple stores by before it registered to me what i just saw, and we walked back.
it's a taxidermy store.....yup- dead animals you can buy!!!
i told him only if it included free shipping and no custom fees. *it didn't*
a narwhal horn. if i had the euros, it would be in the corner of my living room...i wanted a short one so i could tell people it was a unicorn horn.....
black plague carrying fleas were optional *guff*
a casual 'let's see what's down here' walk found me outside a Marimekko store *swoon*
she did have this panel (the cows with a lime green background) at almost 200 euros, it was extremely tempting....she did share her card and winked at me and whispered that if i changed my mind she would ship to the states.....
below Sacre Coeur cathedral there is a small 'fabric district' it is mostly home dec and fashion fabric, but i did find some sangria fabric for FOUR euro a meter!! that was a no brainer- i pay almost five times that much for it here in the states....
-the catacombs (come on, like i'd pass on a thimble with a pic of a human skull)
-the arc de triomphe
-the Eiffel tower
(yes, i have a Nemo key. davis also bought me four blanks so that if we change the locks, i can always have a Nemo key. *that's love right there*)
so, that's my loot...the interesting part anyway...i could go on and on about the trip, but i know when it's time to hush (sometimes) i might do a travel tips post....i learned alot about Paris before i left by reading blogs, so i should throw my two cents into the Web. it's only fair....
