3. You can still buy Menu cards, and if you need calligraphy supplies for lettering them, this shop on Rue du Pont Louis-Philippe has those as well. Mélodies Graphiques, it's called. A wonderful rabbit hole of a shop, a place to stock up on beautiful cards that are gifts in themselves (I gave my friend Alison one on her birthday last year and I noticed the other day that it's still on display over a year later). If you're afraid you'd never emerge from such a tempting treasure box, you can savour the magical windows. (As well, if you're interested, you could read my much longer post centering around a purchase I made here several years ago)
4. One of the 900 buttons crafted by Henri Hamm (1871-1961)
And displayed thus (thanks to my sister for this great mise en abîme shot of me photographing for you)
as just a small part of the fabulous Déboutonner la Mode exposition at La Musée des Arts Décoratifs. A splendid, astonishing exhibit, well worth the visit.
