Serendipity, a boutique located in Saint-Germain-des-Prés (the fashionable 6th arrondissement of Paris), was founded by two mothers, Elisa de Bartillat and Laurence Simoncini, who offer a mix of restored vintage pieces and well as new furniture, toys, and accessories. Good news for those of us not living in Paris: the shop will soon begin offering shipping to the US.
