Links I Love Week 30

Happy Sunday! I am writing this week’s Links I Love from my new place. ❤️ It took a lot of hard work, 3 moving guys, a lot of hours packing and unpacking, but I am finally here! I am setting in to the new space and unpacking as much as possible over the weekend. Hopefully I can squeeze in a nap on the couch. I will share more on the new place soon. Grab you coffee and croissant (or blueberry muffin in my case) and enjoy this week’s links.

Tati, a “Place Where Everybody Can Shop” is closing its doors. I lived by the Barbès location in 2013 and I picked up a few things when I moved into my first apartment. It is sad to see this go away due to COVID

I picked up a few things for the new place over the weekend after unpacking a bit. I am still set on those blueberry muffins from last week and the blueberries are still in the fridge. I have been slowly eating them because they are so good I am trying to savor them and save them blueberry muffins.

  1. Hi Rebecca
    Love, love those plates by Madame de la Maison
    does Ajiri have a physical store? Would love to bring some back on my next trip to Paris
    (see I’m being optimistic)

    • Hi Fidelma,

      I have really loved them too. You need a set 🙂 I don’t think she has an actual storefront. You can email her (she is super sweet) and she will help you!

  2. Dear Rebecca,
    The dishes that you found are gorgeous but please know that the markup is quite steep on these. Having a home within an hour of Limoges (the porcelain capital of France), I can tell you that a set of 6-9 of these dishes can easily be found for a fraction of the price (and I’d gladly bring them home for you and ship them domestically). For reference, here is a link to a set of 9 such porcelain dishes on the FB marketplace in the region – Love your blog, as always.

    • Hi Suzanne,

      That is so sweet of you! I know the markup is high. She originally had them for 100 euros and recently increased the price. She is a small business and it is important for me to support her. I would love for you to bring some home and I would be happy to pay you for them. I have always wanted to bring some back but I never have the room in my suitcase.
