“Fabulous Place for Fun Gifts”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

My daughter and I had a blast at this store (found through a Chic Shopping Tour). We brought home a cat-shaped lint brush, a dessert server in the shape of some small fantastical animal, a colorful umbrella (also with a cat motif), folding brush/mirror sets and several other fun brightly colored items. Service was pleasant, and the clerk included small cute gift bags for all our purchases. Highly recommended.

“Good gift shop”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

This shop has some gifts that you will not find elsewhere. There is nothing that is cheap and junky. We loved some of the giftware for the kitchen, including a cheese grater shaped like the Eiffel Tower. The service is good and whilst you are are in this area go to one of the cake shops or have a Berthillion ice cream.

“Unique Gifts”
Reviewed December 17, 2011

I discovered this shop for the first time in 1999, or was it 1998? Anyway, my visit was at the Ile Saint-Louis shop but I understand, after later visits to Paris, that there are subsequent locations around the city. I am rating this a go-to place for unique gifts. Some are for the home and not practical to pack, as I am sure knives even with a pig handle won't go over well at airport security. But you can find small things. I remembered that my first purchase was a pencil holder and it was a pig face and the pencils fit in the pig's nose! LOL! I lost that pencil holder, now I need to go back and find if they still carry it or find another "treasure."

“Walking by, Pylones definitely catches your eye”
Reviewed July 18, 2008

Visited the store at the bottom of Montmarte....Everything is so colorful, bright and fun that you wish your whole house could be outfitted with their various gadgets and furniture. We bought many as gifts to give as Christmas gifts. VERY FUN.
