I was looking for a store to buy household items yesterday and I got a little lost and ended up discovering a store called “The Drugstore” or La Droguerie. I went inside and couldn’t believe how amazing it was. It is a store that has ribbon, beads, yarn, feathers and various little sundries for creative projects. It is very large and the selection is really unbelievable, better than anywhere I’ve been. The pictures aren’t great because I don’t think pictures are allowed so I was trying to be a little sneaky. It is everything you would expect from a store like this in Paris. Think: rows and rows of jars of beads, gorgeous bins of feathers, and the prettiest colors of yarn I’ve ever seen. I especially loved the painted bench! If you are into creative things and visiting Paris you must stop by this store.

The best thing about Paris so far is what happens when you get lost. You go out to buy hangers and a garbage can and find a great place like this.
