Craft stores in Paris - Loisirs & Creation

 One of the days that it was over 100 degrees in Paris, I decided to go on a hunt for craft stores. The stores will have a/c, I told myself. I'll walk in the shade, I planned. It'll be a cinch. Well, it didn't quite turn out that easily, but I did find some pretty cool stores. Loisirs & Creations is actually on the second floor of a toy store, and there is no sign outside for it. I was so glad I took the risk and headed in the children's store. If I hadn't, I wouldn't get to share all of these pics with you. I kept the pics relatively small so they'd load faster, but you can always click to see them bigger.

I've since discovered that there are a dozen locations of this store across France. I feel sure I visited the most difficult one to find from where I am; that's just how I roll. If you'd like to go to this exact store, you can find it at 120 rue d'Alesia - take metro line 4 to Alesia station. 

Hope you enjoyed the crafty eye candy! I have more to share than I have days left in Paris, so there will be more to come. I hope you aren't sick of the pics and stories from Paris just yet. Au revoir, mes amies!


  1. I have loved going on a virtual Parisian trip with you this summer! I loved this post! The entire time I was scrolling through I thought, "This place looks just like a candy store!" I love the way everything is displayed, so pretty. Thank you for taking the time to share Paris with us!

  2. I'll never tire of your photos!! I'm so glad you were able to find some craft stores in Paris. I have a hard time finding them in Chicago!!!
