Shopping in Paris: L'Argenterie

I have to admit to having a fondness for sparkly silver. Although I always keep a hopeful eye on the stalls at the marches aux puces (flea markets), I usually wind up in the Marais district at this lovely little shop on Rue de Varennes.

Yes, it can be pricey, but so pretty and you can get fairly well-priced souvenirs here like silver bangles fashioned from antique forks and spoons. The helpful staff will gift-wrap.

To celebrate your purchase, or a particularly good find, you might want to walk further down the street for lunch or dinner at Cafe des Musees, open seven days a week.
