Elegant Grocery Store




Tucked away in a corner behind Place de la Madeleine is the famous Fauchon. This fine establishment is located in the 8th Arrondissement, epitomizing refinement and glamour around every corner. Here one can shop for fruits, cheeses, wines, spices, meats, coffees- anything your heart desires for the perfect meal or gift. If it is exotic, it will probably be here............This is one of the dozens of specialty shops that caters to the Parisians. I didn't get all the photographs I would have liked, as they are really on the watch for people snapping pictures all the time-I do a great deal of shooting through the elegantly bedecked windows. Just another look at what Paris has to offer~
