Rose petal jam? Sounds interesting. The china is beautiful, I imagine the could be the subject of some macro shots.

Buck said...

I have never heard of rose petal jam; I wonder if Marie knew of it? The china is lovely.

J'aime faire du shopping! Allons i!

Alain Alexandre said...

les bonnes manières je connais avec ma grand.mère très bourgeoise; certes pas si mal que cela; que des couleurs et des délices.

Randy said...

I probably would have bought the jam just to try it out. Nice shot.

Evelyn said...

I love browsing at stores like this - all pretty and nice things.

T. Becque said...

Rose petal jam sounds interesting. Are the manners for current times or Marie's times? :)

You like the PNW don't you? It is gorgeous and probably cooler now too. Well, if you ever get down to Arizona, let me know!

Je me fie plus à "fournisseur officiel de SM la Reine d'Angleterre" pour le thé ou les petits gâteaux ou "de le prince de Galles" pour le champagne.
Il y a peut-être le vrai crane de Mozart enfant dans cette boutique ?

rose petal jam! oh yum.

VP said...

Please forgive me: I hate that kind of stuff! Any petite tête coupée?

Cezar and Léia said...

Adorable picture, I would love to shop there but I bet everything is very expensive.Well...I imagine, maybe not!

T-shirts? I wonder what Marie would think?

Tracy said...

But do they sell CAKE? :-)

Louis la Vache said...

Anything there worth losing your head over?

I was looking for Huckleberry Jam and saw Rose Hip Jelly.
Love the collage. MB

Jacob said...

If we had found our way there, I'm sure we would two more tee shirts! As I said, next time!

Kaori said...

I want the pretty china but I should probably get the good manners book :D

Halcyon said...

Everyone's out to make a buck!

Francisca said...

It was worth to come late to read everyone's funny comments! I'm with VP, though... not my cuppa tea! :-D

@ Jacob: I certainly hope you would NOT have bought YOURSELF such feminine tee-shirt. For Lois Anne, yes, but NOT for you!

@ VP: I think they are right to market just about everything they can. Versailles isn't heavily subsidised, it relies on donations, patronage, sponsorship (by many American companies and associations)and the entrance fees of the 7 million + visitors every year. And since it's such a small estate :-) it does cost A LOT of money to keep...

@ Louis la Vache: not for me, I prefer antiques shops!

@ Tracy: Yes! They do!!! At 'Angelina', a famous Parisian tea room that has a branch there. Quite pricy too.

@ T. Becque: these are facsimiles of 18th century good manners books.

Jacob said...

I'm begging your pardon! I thought they would also sell men's tee shirts! Maybe with a photo of the towers?

;-)

Loree said...

Rose petal jam sounds very unique and interesting.

EG Wow said...

I wonder what rose petal jam tastes like. :)

Francisca said...

Yes, I sure understand the NEED to be commercial... but I don't have to like it, right? The irony in what I say, Ciel, is that I spent 20 years making the kind of stuff that goes into shops like that. :-)

Jack said...

Quite a debate is raging here. I would be glad to pop into the shop, though I would probably leave fast and empty-handed.
Thanks for touring Hartford with me again today. That is what CDP offers - one third good photos, one third stirred memories of places we have enjoyed and one third imagining places we might go. I visited Versailles in 1983 and now again with you. You always make Versailles interesting; I will try to return the favor.

I think it would be fun to thumb through the books of manners, and not to buy them. I know, I won't measure up, just don't know to what extent!

Nice shop window, great capture.
