La Façonnerie

La Façonnerie Versailles
Not very far from the palace, in the old streets of Saint-Louis neighbourhood, a little gem of a shop is unfortunately hidden from most tourist's usual brisk walk from the train station to the palace... This is where you can buy fun made in Versailles souvenirs and also have your 'royal' photos transferred onto tees, sweats, mugs or Iphone cases... It's called La Façonnerie and VDP recommends it as part of an off the beaten track visit of the city! These photos were taken last summer! VDP is away for the weekend, see you soon!

Non loin du château, rue du Vieux Versailles, se trouve la Façonnerie. A l'écart des circuits habituels des touristes qui se hâtent de la gare au château, en s'arrêtant chez Mc Do et Starbucks, voici une petite entreprise versaillaise qui propose pourtant de quoi rapporter des souvenirs personnalisés de Versailles... et aussi de "customiser" vos vêtements, tasses, coques de téléphone ! Ces photos ont été prises l'été dernier, VDP est absente pour le weekend, à très bientôt !

A rather neat looking shop! One of those mugs would suit me fine.

Bruce Springsteen never sang that.

So, in Versailles even the tee shirt stores look elegant! Enjoy your weekend.

Looks like a nice shop.

A much more pleasant place to shop for souvenirs.

I wish I had known about this shop when we were there a few years ago, although we probably wouldn't have had time to stop anyway. Very cool place!

I wonder if you came to Cardiff to share in Wales' long awaited victory??

I'll have to remember that when I make it to Versailles sometime in the future.

We will all need to go there when we visit your city, Ciel!

It's a lovely little shop, the out of the way stores are the best.

That red tee would be perfect, I've been looking for a red tee everywhere :)
