We stumbled upon this store after leaving the catacombs and it's just wonderful. It has two or three (I really think it's three) floors of Limoges dinnerware, pottery and porcelain, all reasonably priced. If I lived in Paris I would shop here for my dinnerware. They also had beautiful tea sets and novelty items like giant coffee cups which would make wonderful planters.

What to buy: Since I had no desire to carry dinnerware back to the states with me, I bought some really cute cheese plates with a map of France and various kinds of cheeses illustrated on them. I thought they would make wonderful gifts. My friend bought a beautiful creamer and sugar bowl set.

What to pay: You won't overpay.
