Shopper’s Diary: Les Mauvaises Graines in Paris

October 11, 2011

Located in the 18th arrondissement, Les Mauvaises Graines is a garden concept store with an eco-warrior-meets-rock-and-roll vibe: Owner David Jeannerot balances beauty with biodiversity, featuring what he calls "eco disco" products for the urban gardener: patent leather planters, trendy tools, "rock gardens"; there's even a vintage motorcycle parked indoors. Go to Les Mauvaises Graines for more information.
