An Afternoon In

THE ILLUSTRATED CITY No.3

AN AFTERNOON IN: ST. GERMAIN, PART ONE

Continuing on from my last post about Paris, 

Some of the places we visited in St. Germain with photos and drawings from my travel sketchbook,

the souvenirs and addresses I collected...

By DECADE

DEYROLLE

/

46, rue du Bac

/ The kind of store with floorboards that creak under your feet.  I wanted to take home a butterfly but was afraid of crushing it in my suitcase, so I got a pack of Les Papillons Playing Cards instead.

CAFE FLORE

/

 172, Boulevard Saint-Germain

/ Everyone was right.

POILANE

/

 8, rue de Cherch Midi

/ Everyone was right about this, too.

GERARD MULOT

76, rue de Seine

/ Another incredible bakery.

By DECADE

SAINT JAMES

66, rue Rennes

/ If you're going to ever buy a striped shirt, might as well do it here. I picked the

Huitriere II

, the fabric is lighter and the shirt is more fitted than their traditional style. 

REPETTO

51, rue du Four

/ And if you're ever going to get ballet flats, might as well be from the wall with the sliding gold ladder.

CITY PHARMA

26, rue du Four

/ A discount beauty store where you can stock up on French beauty brands like Embryolisse or La Roche-Posay for way cheap. You definitely won't leave empty handed, you've been warned.

By DECADE

JARDIN DU LUXEMBOURG

/ off

rue de Vaugirard 

ODORANTES

/

9, rue Madame

/ There were no flowers in bloom at the Jardin Du Luxembourg, so this shop made up for it. With dark black gray walls and elegant taxidermy, this is the most beautiful flower shop I've ever been in.

ST. SULPICE

Place Saint-Sulpice

/ At night, the lions come out.

AS MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY,

CELINE

/

16, rue de Grenelle

/ Where I got 

my pink Trio and Sunglasses

, good times.

A.P.C.

/

38, rue Madame

/

More shopping

.

PIERRE HERME

/

72, rue Bonaparte

/ Especially loved the gold dust on everything.

L'EPICERIE d'OLIVIER PITOU

/

34, rue Saints Pères

/ Wish I was still around the corner from here.

ERIC KAYSER

/

18, rue du Bac

/ That's the only problem, too many incredible bakeries.

I'll be doing a separate post on the other half of the 6e,

 then the list of different restaurants we ate at, bars we had drinks at,

galleries, museums, bookstores

and all of the other things I saw around Paris!
