Marais is the perfect place to visit for fashionistas, and in particular, one can’t leave there without visiting Merci, lifestyle-theme shop. The decoration in the sophisticated store is dynamic and magnificent, and the arrangement of their exquisite products are also quite unique.
Merci lies in front of “St-Sebastien Froissart,” a metro station in the eastern part of Paris, and on a fairly quiet street unlike some of the other more congested streets of Marais. But the shop was full of people who like to search for secret treasures from all over the world.
On the other hand, admittedly, the food is little bit expensive – salmon bagel for 18 euro(Japan is actually cheaper), but I think it’s normal in Paris. But if you are into fashion, you will definitely fall in love with it at first sight.
※Merci was created by Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, Founders of BONPOINT, the children’s fashion label in March 2009. According to their website, since then it has become the launch pad of many young designers and Bernard and they are continuing to donate some of their proceeds to Madagascar.
