You know the feeling when you enter a very unique place that seems to be a parallel universe? That is how you feel when you enter this charming store full of tiny soldiers and characters. A great place to visit and find good gifts!

Just a delight every time I go to Paris or when I lived there. Wonderful little gem of a boutique. Great artists represented. Particularly fond of Napoleonic era or Brittany figures.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
