They obviously modernized the shop!
That's a lot of nails!!
Nails as in hammer and nail or fingernail? Considering the upheavals of the last 212 years, theirs is a remarkable achievement.
Are we talking nails as hammer and nails or a place for manicures?
This is not the kind of business that I would expect to have longevity of more than two centuries.
"Vendeur de clous", la je suis bluffe, je savais pas qu'il y avait des magasins spécialisées que dans les clous !! et tu les as essayes, ils sont bien ? ;)
Mon Dieu, ca doit en faire, des clous! Et ca vaut combien, des clous?
@ all nails as in hammer & nails.
ne vendre que des clous permettrait donc de survivre aux differentes epoques et evenements, à Napoleon, a la revolution de 1848 et à 2 guerres mondiales?!.. qui l'eut cru?!
Looks a beautiful and "modern"facade in this store.I couldn't imagine a whole shop in focus of nail.Very interesting!Léia*** my English is awful, anyway I understood 'nail', that thin pointed piece of metal, isn't it?
Lovely old building and it looks bathed in sunlight, looks like it was a gorgeous sunny day Ciel, perfect for buying a hammer and or nails!!
This would be a shop Mr. Bratcat would love to visit.
Wow, they obviously have had the corner on the market in this area :^) That's a long time to sell nails!
Incroyable, n'est-ce pas, que des clous en plein centre-ville!J'ai trouvé ton blog par un autre (Rose, Lace & Brocante) et j'aime bien voir des photos des endroits bienconnus :))Bisous (de Versailles!!), Chantal
Racheterait-il les notres? ;-)
That's a long time to sell nails. Business is still going on though. MBHi!!
c'est vrai que les échafauds ont lancé le commerce du clou
My first reaction is that's not possible! 1744? Good grief. This country didn't exist then! I think they must have the knowledge of how to run a "hardware" store pretty well nailed down by now!
Oh wow. Is that all they have sold for over 200 years? ;)
Wow! That store was founded at about the same time my village was!
Since 1799, that's just so cool.
Wait, is that the same shop you told me to take a picture of?
@ T. Becque: could be, it's opposite the 'éclair pâtisserie', I don't really remember!
