This romantic vintage diamond ring arrived in the post late last week from San Francisco, and it is so very delicate and chic, it has not left my finger since.  And so, by introduction, this week’s {at the shops} is a very special one, for proprietor, Lynn Goldfinger-Abram, and I go back a bit, to the early days of TIG, when she was one of the very first advertisers on the site, some four or five years ago.  We have kept in touch all this time, and so, today, thought it might be lovely to tell you about her shop, Paris Hotel Boutique . . .

A vintage décor collector and antiques enthusiast, Lynn’s fondness for hotel silver, antique furnishings and such, would grow into a spectacular collection of period pieces, eventually leading to an antiques business in 1995.  An online shop would open in 2002, filled with furnishings from Europe and first edition books, paintings, Mid-Century decor, and a beautiful collection of old hotel souvenirs and silver from the late 1800s through the mid 20th century, evocative of the grace and elegance of another time and place.  And so, a few favourite things from the shop . . .

{p.s.} many things in the shop sell out quickly — can’t imagine this pair of Vintage Italian Marble Horse Head Bookends lasting long . . . [but these are lovely as well] & similar rings to mine, [above], are herehere [& this pink cameo with diamonds is lovely too] x

  • So so beautiful—one of my favorite shops, I must say! I love the products highlighted, and the prettiness the never ceases 🙂

    Warmly, Sarah

  • Oh my gosh, beautiful. Everything is just lovely. I am in love with all the jewelry in her shop…well really with everything. Although I am particularly struck by your nails (assuming that is your hand!).
