Opened just this season, in time for holiday shopping, at this annex boutique to the Picasso Museum you will find items specially designed around the theme of Picasso's works, as well as a plethora of Picasso-themes books. For example, French designer Sarah Lavoine was commissioned to create a line of tableware inspired by Picasso. Hence the thick ceramic ware of basic solid colors like burnt orange and Riviera yellow can be yours to grace your holiday table setting in time for Christmas. Toward the back of the boutique, whose physical presence is across the street from the actual museum, there is a space wholly devoted to children. In addition to the larger ticket items there are a fair number of knick-knack souvenirs in the form of pencils and writing tablets and the such.
- Christmas Shopping: "Look for this boutique just off the lovely Marais Place Thorigny, across the street from the museum's main entrance. It's worth seeking this little jewel out since the shops and the area surrounding it put you deep into the Marais, one of Paris' loveliest shopping areas, filled with bespoke boutiques."
- Best for Christmas Shopping Because: Picasso-mania has descended on the city this year and this boutique is stocked with lovely gift items inspired by the artist.
