Bienvenue! ♥ I'm Sandra, a native Bostonian who was a translator in Europe for 13 years. I learned there to appreciate the beauty of everyday objects and the freedom of traveling lightly. My Shop's name reflects an inspirational moment in my travels, the first time I experienced the soft sensuality, Impressionist lucidity, and dreamy haziness of Paris rain. My soul still wanders in that rain.
My Shop showcases time-worn yet timeless vintage items with their own origin, history, and unique journey, just like each human being with whom these objects resonate, and each of my handmade items takes its inspiration from simpler times. As part of my ministry, 100% of all net proceeds of ParisRain are DONATED to animal rescue and environmental charities including the World Wildlife Fund, ASPCA, National Wildlife Federation, Nature Conservancy, IFAW, and others, approx. $6K since 2010. Another $10K was also donated from my now-closed WeddingFlowerShop; I'm now offering you some of those floral arrangements and bouquets in this Shop at special prices.
Thanks for stopping by. May all your travels throughout this world be blessed -- au revoir!

Frequently asked questions

100% of all net proceeds of ParisRain are DONATED to animal rescue & environmental charities, $6K and counting. See my "About" for details.
Gift wrapping requests and recycled packaging
Let me know if you'd like your item gift-wrapped. I use clean recycled or recyclable packaging and dissolvable packing peanuts for Mother Nature.
Shipping upon request beyond the USA
I will gladly ship smaller, unbreakable items if you understand that I cannot be held liable for tracking and delivery once they leave the USA.
Descriptions and sizes of listed items
I describe every item to the best of my knowledge. The photos' lighting and different monitors may alter their exact colors. Please read entire descriptions and use a ruler for size BEFORE ordering to avoid issues.
The rare exceptions to returns policies
In the case of a few very valuable items, I will state in bold print in the description that no returns will be accepted, negating the above returns policies. Your purchase implies your acceptance of that exception.
