A splurge for great gifts
The pricey Fauchon specialty food store is not my usual kind of place to shop, but it was getting late in the trip and we hadn't gone to some usual gift-buying places. so when we were across the street at the Madeleine church and decided to stop in. I usually pick up small jars of honey at the market in Beaune and was pleased to find some similar flavors here, along with nice assortments of mustards and jams at not outrageous prices. Another tactic would be to wait until reaching the duty free store at the airport, and I did buy something there, but the selection is not nearly as deep. Besides, the Madeleine showroom just looks cool!
