Downstairs from where I'm staying is the brilliant bookstore for Ofr. (library and gallery) and TI is deeply in love. The new Self-Service, Fantastic Man,drawings, Polaroid 600 cameras, art postcards, back issues of all the directional mags, notebooks, rare Bless products, furniture, T-shirts, vintage books, rare candles, cool old leather bags, wool scarves, flowers, fragrances...It's all a lovely blur and I wish I could get a table in there with a good tea and a pile of pastries and spend the rest of the week huddled in a back corner, making of myself an eccentric fixture. THIS is my true dream of Paris.
