Petit Pan

petitpan3 On a recent trip to Paris (oh, how we love thee!), we discovered Petit Pan - a charming little shop filled with all kinds of marvelous things...

Like this lil' rabbit, that came in his own "petite maison" (a cardboard box with holes cut out for his ears - one has to let the ears breathe, clearly!)

The aesthetic is heavily inspired by Chinese folk art and popular culture (no one does that particular shade of hot pink quite so well) but with that je ne sais quoi that is so very French...

marionettes

bags

Adorable bags...

kites

Love these fabulous kites...

chair

Love this children's chair SO MUCH...

beads

In addition, they have a shop dedicated entirely to beads, baubles, ribbons, and fabrics and offer what are, no doubt, fabulous classes in drawing, textiles and kite-making, among others.

lanterns

If you ever find yourself in Paris, you must visit - it is a truly magical little place. ย You can order from them onlineย here, or visit them in Paris here: 39 (the haberdashery) and 76 (the shop), Rue Franรงois Miron.
