One boutique I’m always thrilled to visit in Paris is Astier de Villatte. The beloved ceramic brand opened a second Paris boutique on the Left Bank’s charming Rue de Tournon last spring (the original is on Rue Saint Honoré) and I fell head over heels when I visited in May. An enormous flower arrangement by artist Livia Cetti greets you upon entering and shelves of pottery reach from floor to ceiling. I can’t wait to pick out a special piece to remember our anniversary by. Perhaps a handsome tea pot to celebrate one year with my tea-loving Englishman. The weekend can’t come soon enough.
