⪧ We left our life in New York City to make a new one in Provence ⪦

Deyrolle





While my family was here, I insisted that we pay a visit to the ever-famous and ever-fascinating shop of wonders: Deyrolle, 46 de la rue du Bac. Tragically, the shop (in actuality, the museum) suffered a fire in February (a link to an article on the fire in the International Herald Tribune) of this year and lost 85% of its inventory - the stuff Natural History Museums are made of: butterflies and seashells and taxidermied bears, hens, geese, tigers - all displayed with french eloquence and flair. It is still a hall of marvel.

We visited a few shops in New York that were similar to this one. No lady lamb standing guard though. Who's her stylist, do you know?
