Left? Right? Red, White and Blue!

Left(Gauche) or Right (Droite)?
With the presidential election fast approaching in the United States, I found the perfect store for politicos and Francophiles who want to express their political beliefs. It's located near the National Assembly of France, of course!

7, rue Aristide Briand
75007 Paris
Open Monday to Friday from 10:00 am - 7:00 pm and Saturday from 10 am - 6:00 pm

If you're an American living abroad, don't forget to register to vote! On Tuesday, the 25th of September, the Union of Overseas Voters celebrates the first National Voter Registration Day with a 12-hour voter registration marathon in Paris at Shakespeare and Company Bookshop, 37 rue de la Bûcherie, 75005 Paris. From 10 am to 10 pm.

3-1! Looks like there's a greater demand for Gauche (Left) socks in France than for Droite (Right) ones.
Liberté, égalité, fraternité - the national motto of France.
Rejected, Adopted, Favorable, Abstention? These highlighters would also make great gifts for married couples and parents!
Take a seat! For children who aspire to have a career in politics.
Red, white and blue. These patriotic colors work for France, the United States and several other countries.

  1. They should be boxing gloves not oven "mitts". No pun or endorsement intended.

  2. Thanks, Mary Kay, for the mention. The Union of Overseas Voters so much appreciates your support! (And we love the boutique at the Assemblée Nationale, too.)

    1. Their lighthearted products took me completely by surprise. At first, I thought that the socks were an anomaly and then I saw the mitts!

  4. Who knew? It's never listed on the "must go" shopping lists for Paris! I love the shoes the best! Are they unisex?

    1. The espadrilles are unisex. Isn't it a shame that summer's almost over and it's too late to wear them. They wouldn't hold up well in the Parisian rain I'm afraid.

  5. I would love a set of the cups, particularly the égalité coffee cups...on my list to buy when next in France. I would also like to see a few more world leaders drinking out of égalité coffee cups.

    1. World leaders drinking out of égalité coffee cups - that's an excellent idea, Baron!

  6. This is great! What the brouhaha?! I want to pick up some of these things for Seb who is very passionate about politics. Me? I NEED that striped top to add to my 50 other ones!

    Thanks for adding the info about registering to vote and such here. I need to get on that.

    1. I'm going to register at Shakespeare and Company next Tuesday. Let me know if you're going to go and we can meet for a cup of coffee.

  7. I could do with some of the socks. I can't tell right from left. Physically or otherwise!

    I will be in the US during the Presidential campaign. Should be interesting!

    Love Denise

    1. I've got to admit that I don't mind not being in the USA during the lead up to the elections because of the current political climate. I'll be curious to read about your impressions of the television advertisements etc on your blog

  8. I registered years ago and sent away for my absentee ballot... now let's just see if PA sends me the ballot!! Fingers crossed it doesn't get lost in the mail!

    1. Good for you for registering! I meant to while I was in MD and didn't get around to it. I hope that you receive your ballot in time. As they say, every vote counts!
