Call it the Great Paris Shopping Challenge. We scoured Paris for objects of beauty and character, made by French artisans and sold in attractive, well-stocked shops. You’ll notice we left our bargain-hunting instincts at home. Stores providing a less than cordial welcome didn't make the list.
Astier de Villatte Plate
Made from black terra-cotta clay, this handmade Astier de Villatte plate recalls an antique book’s marbled endpapers. The company’s ceramics, including its signature white pottery, meld Old World charm with a modern aesthetic.
