The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.

Beautiful shop full of beautiful things

La Droguerie has lots of beautiful yarn, ribbons, fabrics, buttons, trims, beads, and more. Their sewing and knitting patterns are excellent, available in kits or in book form, some with English translations.

This is not a self-service shop -- that's usual in France but surprising for Americans. You must be prepared to wait your turn for help, and then you will receive unhurried personal service. The helpful ladies at the shop measured off just the right length of yarn for me (no skeins to pick up), cut just the right length of ribbon, got me a copy of the pattern book I chose once I browsed through the in-store copies, and advised me on buttons. I didn't have room in my luggage to take home as much as I wanted, but I was delighted with my purchases.

Once I returned to the U.S., I placed an order at their online shop and was completely satisfied with their packaging, their responses to questions, and the products. Shipping is steep, but less than airfare. I'll be ordering again. I hope I'll also be visiting again.
