Call me baby and other things you see in windows while you sightsee


July 20, 2012 by admin

When I travel, I wish I could just bundle up all the cute little shop windows I love and bring them back home.  I feel like you get to know so much about a city when you see what the people who actually live in it advertise and buy.  When I traveled to Paris a few weeks ago, it was such a quick trip, but without the boys in tow I saw some fabulous things in store windows and had plenty time to snap a few shots so I could remember them and swoon over them when I got home.

I think this phone would be so cool for the toddler/preschool set.  It’s called the Iwoody, but I think “Call me, Baby” would be a little more appropriate.  This shop was closed when we strolled by or I definitely would have gone in and made a purchase.

I was too scared to actually set foot in this shop.  I wasn’t sure what exactly they were selling:

This was in the window of a restaurant/cafe called Milk.  We had just eaten, so I couldn’t imagine eating another mouthful more but I do want to go there on a return trip.  I love the thoughtful details the owners put into all the decor.

I was intrigued by this bike hanging in the window of a bike shop.  It’s one of those toddler balance bikes but it had handbrakes which I haven’t seen on any balance bikes here in the United States.

And I wish we could get cheese like this here too.  Delightful, beautiful, cone-shaped cheese.  I have no idea if this one even tastes good or how much it is or what you eat it with but I would love to try it and I totally forgot to sample it when I was there.  And now in my head it is the epitome of the most-amazing-delicious-blow-your-mind Parisian cheese out there.

Thank goodness I have the pictures to remember it by.  Must go back.  C’est la vie.

  1. In my opinion, window shopping is better in Paris than anywhere else in the world! Glad you enjoyed your solo vacation!

    I love your memory of the cheese. I do that all the time. Things that were probably terrible become the epitome of greatness because I never got around to trying them. You probably just made it worse by bringing home a picture of it. Guess you’ll have to go back.

  3. I loved all the window dressings in Paris too. They really put a lot of effort and creativity into them. I’d be scared to go into that store too. 🙂 Yummy on the cheese!
