The roses on this haircomb were even more beautiful in person. I actually moved them to bobby pins to use in my hair on my wedding day and although the shop mentioned them being very delicate, they were much sturdier than I expected. I would definitely order from this shop again!
"Paris is always a good idea ... " (Audrey Hepburn in the movie "Sabrina")
Bienvenue! ♥ I'm Sandra, a native Bostonian who was a translator in Europe for 13 years. I learned then to appreciate the beauty of everyday objects and 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. Each of the handmade items take their inspiration from simpler times, and my silk florals make use of my personal experience and certificates in interior decorating and floral design. All net proceeds of ParisRain are DONATED to a variety of animal rescue and environmental charities including the World Wildlife Fund, ASPCA, National Wildlife Federation, Nature Conservancy and others, over $5K since February 2010, with an additional $10K donated from my now-closed WeddingFlowerShop.
Thanks for reading and browsing. May all your adventures be blessed -- au revoir!
