    Villa Médicis: Decoration, antiques, gifts

    by Norali Written Dec 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hmm.. What a name!

    The shop is a small one on Rue Fleuriau, in the same street as Musée du Nouveau Monde. It's easily accessible.

    The welcome makes it special.

    What to buy: Decoration trinkets... such as statues, vase.

    Items are rather of antiques than contemporary style.

    Home furnishing, paintings also if I recall it well

    What to pay: depends on what you buy

    La Boutique du Marin: Marine and sailing trinkets

    by Norali Updated Oct 28, 2003

    Where else than in La Rochelle, traditional port city, to find your marine and sailing trinkets.

    The shop was loctaed in city center, under the arches though I couldn't remember whether ity was Rue mercier or not. No sure.

    You will buy there lamps, ash-trays, lighthouse miniatures. Most of time, they are not that expensive and exist in styles that would match different tastes.

    I appreciate there the less usual pieces: boat models, in wood - in ironglass.

    What to buy: Besides, you don't have to wait for your dream-boat to buy and use those alloy or copper trinkets used on deck: lamps, mirrors, fittings hardware, navigation tools, marine bells, hooks, compasses, clocks....

    They may serve as gifts if not for you.
