Bonjour Paris! Together with Shop At The Museum we have created 3 brilliant set of pencils for their Paris pop up at Le Bon Marché.

The pencils are all in French including our favourite things about France - pâtisserie, joie de vivre and the Paris Métro.

1. Joie De Vivre Pencil Set

The joie de vivre pencil set have many of the french daily life we love. This includes:

  • Bruncher

  • Bouquiner

  • Paresser

  • Danser

  • Chiner

  • Embrasser

French Way of Life Pencils

2. Pâtisserie Pencil Set

The pâtisserie pencil set have all our favourite French pastries. This includes:

  • Tarte aux fraises

  • Paris-Brest

  • Mont-Blanc

  • Madeleine

  • Macaron

  • Eclair

In the process of designing these pencils and shooting the below photo, we gobbled many macarons from our all time favourite Pierre Hermé. They always have the most innovative and cool flavours of macarons - jasmine tea, mandarin and olive oil, chocolate and earl grey tea are divine.

Le Bon Marché Paris limited edition patisserie pencils

3. Paris Métro Pencil Set

Our favourite Métro stations in Paris. The thing about Paris Métro stations, every Métro station has a different decor or different theme. We love cruising along the Métro lines, as some stations are just like visiting a museum, a piece of art in its own right.

Like our London Underground Pencil Set, the Paris Métro pencils the colour of the lines and their interchange foiled onto HB pencils.

  • Odeon

  • Saint-germain des Près 

  • Opera

  • Bastille

  • Invalides

  • Louvre-Rivoli

Le Bon Marché Paris limited edition Paris Metro stations pencils

These are all Limited Edition designs, and could only be purchased directly from Shop At The Museum at Le Bon Marche between now and Christmas. A great souvenir and gift from Paris!

As the famous saying goes from the movie Sabrina by Audrey Hepburn - Paris is always a good idea!

It's our pleasure to introduce our latest stockist in Paris : Shop At The Museum www.shopatthemuseum.fr . What's best - we caught up with the founder Virginie Martin-Robin, to learn more about being a founder, museums, gifting, christmas and cakes in Paris and most important of all, to know about their latest Christmas Pop Up collaboration at La Gaîté Lyrique, Paris.

I AM A : What was the idea behind setting up Shop At the Museum ?

Virginie : During my travels all around the world, I love visiting all the museums' gift shops. I always thought how great it will be if we can find all of them in one place! Et voilà!

I AM A : Which museum is your favourite ?

Virginie : Le Musée de la vie Romantique ... so parisian :)

I AM A : Which museum gift store is your favourite ?

Virginie : Shop At The Museum www.shopatthemuseum.fr , because I can see and shop all the products from all my favourite museum shops!

I AM A : Soon it will be Christmas. What's the most important Christmas tradition for you ?

Virginie : Eating gingerbread and Christmas star biscuits!

I AM A : For picking gifts, what are important things you think about / features in gifts that you look for ?

Virginie : The designers, the illustrators. If the person who created the product have a good soul... it will be a good gift for sure.
