This department store ...Galeries Lafayette" has to be one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. I was in awe when I walked inside...not your typical department store.
We visited this store in Paris while my husband, daughter and I were on vacation and were on our way to Turkey but stopped for a week in Paris. The stained glass dome roof in the middle of the store was amazing...it was a cloudy day but I can imagine if it was sunny how the gorgeous colours would come through.
It had balconies going around the whole store........with ornate iron work. Every groove on the balconies had a little display of merchandise......Everything in the store was very expensive and I could see they really hiked the prices up.
It was very crowded there and I think more people were snapping away at photos then they were shopping.....especially at the gorgeous stained glass dome on the roof.
Thank you for stopping by.
