La Petite Baleine - papeterie



(The Little Whale)

If you are planning a wedding, celebrating the birth of a child, 
or for any special occasion, 
this charming shop on Rue Littré 
has both the traditional engraved announcements/invitations 
and a creative artistry for a more eclectic look.


I was taken with the petite sign sporting a little whale!

Rue Littré, c'est une belle adresse pour un commerce lié à l'écriture.

I think 'charming' is indeed the best word to describe this shop!

I love the rainbow of ribbons!

The bright colors really draw the eye. I'd be tempted to go in even without having a child's birthday to celebrate.

I have discovered far too many cute places on your blog where I would fall in love and break the bank! Maybe it's good I didn't know about you till AFTER I went to Paris!

I love Paris paper stores but the ones I've visited usually have the same brands we have here. Maybe I'm going to the wrong shops!

I love the colors too, Genie—especially with the window framed in somber gray. Maybe I shouldn't admit it, but Petite Baleine was my nickname when I lived in Paris.

Il me semble que le nom de Litré, est celui qui, le premier à classifié les minéraux (? )

It seems that, Litré's name, is the one first have classified the minerals. No ?
