Found La Comedie Francaise by accident, while being as usual lost while walking around Paris. Very beautiful building with so much history. Went into their shop and found the most kind ladies I encountered in Paris. The stores have great and fine things to buy, they wrapped beautifully yall our purchases. A treat to be just inside.
