Really gorgeous and unique. Thank you for shipping so quickly. I am very happy with my purchase.

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, over $6K since February 2010 with another $10K also donated from my now-closed WeddingFlowerShop.
Thanks for stopping by. May all your travels throughout this world be blessed -- au revoir!

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

Shipping beyond the USA
I have not listed other countries' shipping fees and generally find larger items are too expensive to ship, but 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. Contact me via Etsy convo for fees.
Descriptions and sizes of listed items
I describe every item to the best of my knowledge and reflect its condition in pricing. Remember that photos' lighting and different monitors affect the appearance of an item's exact color. Please read my entire description and use a ruler for size BEFORE ordering to avoid misunderstandings.
