Place Maubert



Two of my usual stops on the way "home" greeting friends
who know what I like and who will make new suggestions.


 
Place Maubert
Métro Maubert-Mutualité
75005, Paris

You're back in my old neighborhood—and that's not the only reason I'm currently envious. Hope you and V have a fabulous visit—but I'm bound and determined to join you one of these times! Meanwhile, looking forward to new and exciting posts --

Sylvia K said...

Ah, does look like MY kind of place! Wish I were there right now! Have a wonderful week, Genie!

Hugs
Sylvia

As the evening rays bid adieu to remains of the day the fluorescent lights of la Ville-Lumiere flickered into life. As was his want, Monsieur Gerard took his regular stroll to his favourite neighboring shops. His purchases were efficient, he knew the produce well. With a Camembert and a Beaujolais tucked securely under his arm he climbed the stairs to his one bedroom attic apartment.

Julie said...

Yes, I have ummmed and ahhhhed in both those shops as well. Enjoy your trip and don't let V lead you astray too far. Surely you are not all staying off Rue St Honore?

Julie said...

As I came back, I read Joe's comment. Now I know where the beaujolais went ...

Gringo said...

Ah, now I know we have something in common other than photogaphy Genie! Nice shots!

Shell Sherree said...

They look like little cosy beacons. Have a magnificent time, dear Genie! I echo Alexa's wish to join you and Virginia there someday.

Isis said...

Un bonito paseo a casa.

Saludos de Isis

One can easily whittle away the time just browsing in these shops.........so much to choose from ........ so many temptations!

A little jealous of your forthcoming trip with Viginia!
Enjoy.

Bibi said...

I'll join you, too. J'adore les crottes de chevre, par example.

Rob-bear said...

Hmmmm. That looks like way too much goodness, side by side.

And Bear isn't there. Quelle domage.

Starman said...

Two places I would very much like to see in my neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale.

Harriet said...

These shops at Place Maubert are also on my way 'home' when I'm in Paris. Nothing finer than to be on old familiar streets when in Paris --- unless one is exploring new streets that will become old favorites! Have fun!

This image is promise of a delicious evening, petite soiree a deux.
Bon voyage Genie!

Warm and inviting places!

Kris said...

I think the contrast of the lights at night make for a warm and inviting visit. It seems even at night, the Paris shops are lovely!

An Eye for Detail said...

So.. I see from Virginia that you're on your way over now! Oh you lucky. Have a wonderful time!!

Jack said...

Definitely two stops well worth making. I hope Virginia, Mary, Holly and you (plus any other interlopers) all have a great and productive trip!

Randy said...

There just needs to be bakery next to these too.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Yes, we are headed that direction and I would like to say that Paris may never be the same... We are meeting bloggers we have already met and ones we are just meeting face-to-face. Holly and I will be spending time with Isabelle who is working in Paris now. Peter (Peter's Paris) will try to get in a word edgewise and I have 4 8GB memory cards and a back-up camera. Paris portraits are packaged for distribution. Yes, ready to GO!

Bises,
Genie

Yum. Just as well there isn't a fromagerie in our village, my hips would never recover. Enjoy!

Jann said...

This is one of the places I stop to have my cheese wrapped and packaged to bring home! They are always so friendly and helpful here!
