Some Paris shops that we passed by

I always enjoy looking in shop and gallery windows and as I pass them in foreign countries. There were lots of them in our neighborhood - selling some pretty weird stuff. Look at the phone cases or those shirts. What I didn't see as we did in Florence when we were there (returning in the spring) were highly priced (>200 Euros) distressed jeans. But there were plenty of expensive clothes and various unpriced items which were surely high.

In case anyone is wondering what that thing in the second and third pictures is, the answer is that we have no idea. In fact, if I remember correctly, it was in a window that had no visible door associated with it, and no signage of any kind.

Also, in case it wasn't clear: All of those "pastries" are phone cases.

Under French law, stores are required to display the price of objects in the window. Retailers circumvent this sometimes by posting a card that says, "Vitrine en cours de realisation" to indicate that display is not yet finished to justify not showing the prices.
