My Must-Have Shopping Stops in France

Petit Bateau


for striped tees and nightgowns


Princesse tam.tam


for bathing suits and pajamas (the summer sales are killer here)


Aigle


for fashionable rain boots and sportswear


Monoprix


for little household goods, reusable "green" bags in cute pouches, for great pears and eggplant caviar, for my organic argan oil spray bottles


Carrefour


Because it's the Target of French supermarkets.  I buy neon cooler bags, BIC pens, Petit Marseillais body wash, and, of course, my Dark Chocolate Special K.  And a million other things!
