If you read last week’s repost from The Wander Plan you’ll know that I recently returned from a trip to France, including one week in Paris. I’m still having dreams of walking the streets of Paris in search of the perfect macarons (which are of course at Laduree) and would return in a heartbeat. There are so many amazing shops, many of which sell just one thing, a concept that I adore but can’t imagine being successful in the states, that I couldn’t dream of visiting them all. Here’s the roundup of my favorites.

Laduree – macarons, tea and branding perfection

La Fille du Pirate – museum quality antique globes and so much more

Cire Trudon – Candle makers since the 17th century and damn good at it too

Galleries Lafayette Gourmet & Bordeautheque – all things delicious and beautiful

Patek Philippe – In case you need a $30,000 watch.

Deyrolle – the most amazing store in the city
