Mamie Gateaux is a perfect place to stop and take a break and have a nice cup of tea and of course a piece of cake. The shop has a very nice French classic interior and they sell some nice pieces of Brocante. I loved all the vintage doll furniture in their shop window.
66 Rue du Cherche-Midi
In a beautiful passage from 1845 you can find this shop full of tiny things, they sell toys but the reason to visit this shop is their collection of miniatures. Here you can everything for you doll house like lamps, baths, sewing machines, baskets and much more. Even if you do not have a doll house to fill it is a very nice store and gallerie to visit.
29-33 PASSAGE JOUFFROY
This tiny shop just around the corner from Place de la Bastille is a perfect place for fabric lovers. They sell a very nice collection of fabrics with their own design but also some other french designers and japanese brands. Next to the fabrics you can find books, tape and craft materials.
Anna Ka Bazaar
17, rue Jean Beausire
Les Fleur has two shops quite close to each other. Both shops sell beautiful items carefully selected. In the shop at 6 passage Josset you can mostly find smaller things like stationary, jewellery, toys and home accesories. The new shop in 5 rue trousseau. is bigger and has a different look with very pretty floors.There they sell more home goods like furniture, cushions, lamps and decoration. Both shops are certainly worth a visit.
If you are not going to Paris very soon, you can always shop online at Les Fleurs.

Every time I go to Paris I visit this shop of Bonton, they have more shops in Paris but this one is my favourite. I prefer this one over the others because of the lovely building, big collection, the location but most importantly because they have a very cute Photobooth. The vintage photobooth is located on the groundfloor and next to the photobooth you can find a rack full of fun accesories to dress up for a silly photo. Lots of fun for just 2 euro and a great souvenirs of your Paris trip.
Last time I was in Paris I found this shop, it's called Parier Tigre, the shop is just gorgeous, not just the products they design and sell but also all the furniture and total shop decor, I could just move in!
If you like staitonary and graphic prints, this is the place to be. So much choice in notebooks, cards, letter banners and pretty enveloppes, a perfect place to buy a gift ( for yourself) and very close to other great shops like Bonton and Merci.

On my recent Paris trip I visited the shop of Adeline Klam again, such a lovely store that I could not go away without taking some pictures and be inspired to make a little illustration of the store front!
So when you are in Paris and love paper, pattern and origami this is a must visit shop!
