Ultramod Mercerie II



2012 Jan 17 3rd_0417


Mercerie
Ultramod


Even the name "Ultramod" is enchanting and is a reminder of times past.  There is nothing dull about this mercerie, a place not only to buy buttons, threads, and ribbons, but a joyful gathering of people who enjoy the needle arts and haberdashery.  The colors almost tumble off the shelves in an array of tassles and silks.


The ambiance here is palatable

I like the colors but it's a bit too 'frilly' for me.

Jeanie said...

Oh, Genie, this one makes my heart sing!

Alexa said...

Love this place. I could spend a small fortune in here—and I don't even sew!

Louise said...

The windows of Paris are endlessly fascinating aren't they? Although I can't imagine wearing one of those hats.

Elizabeth Eiffel said...

Great shot. How did you manage to keep yourself out of the reflection in the window? Bisous

Je ne me rappelle pas si, celle-là... j'y suis allée. Il fût un temps où je courais les merceries de Paris, ne trouvant pas ce dont j'avais besoin à Lausanne. En plus, la plus belle mercerie de Lausanne fermera si il n'y a pas de repreneur.

Mais, j'ai trouvé sur des marchés, des km. de dentelle noire pour agrémenter mes robes de tango argentin.
Sur les marchés, ils vendent des stocks de fin de séries de fabrique.
