Shopper’s Diary: Liberty at Merci in Paris

April 16, 2010

My favorite store at the moment is Merci, which I managed to visit twice last week on a trip to Paris. The responsible consuming experience (all profits are donated to children’s aid in Madagascar) begins with the approach to the shop; through a café lined with donated books, which opens onto a vast, nearly empty, entry hall. The idea is simple: read a book, consider the appeal of an empty space, then shop. The goods—located on the outskirts of the multi-level shop—include a current collaboration with Liberty of London, with fabric by the yard, oversized pillows, napkins, and packing tape produced exclusively for the shop. The lower level is stocked with reasonably priced seasonal items, kitchenwares, and lighting. A collection of solid colored bedding and table linens is especially appealing, with prices starting at €29 for a pillow sham. Go to Merci for location information and opening hours.
