ladan and i were abandoned at the apt by angela and marlayna, who’d both travelled elsewhere for the weekend (angela with her relatives a few hours from paris and marlayan in barcelona). today, then, was my day for souvenir shopping. i didn’t get everything i neded, but i went back to the best souvenir shop in paris, in my and marlayna’s opinions: la vaissellerie – they have a few throughout the city, though the one on rue saint antoine is my personal favorite. as for their souvenirs, it’s a good mixture of uber touristy souvenirs and souvenirs that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional – mostly kitchenware and accessories. well, who doesn’t use their kitchen??
