British expats looking for a home away from home could do worse than head to the plainly named British Shop. This crockery store peddles a Beatrix Potter image of the UK: Peter Rabbit-branded Wedgwood tableware, Brixton Pottery dishes with flower motifs – the works. Teapots (€20-€140), cosies (€14.50) and mugs (€15-€60) – some of them emblazoned with Union Jacks – keep up the high tea theme, and children are catered for with lunchbox sets and a cutesy Bunnykins range. The shop even stocks Christmas crackers, a product largely alien to the French population. The overall look is somewhere between pretty and tawdry, though the amiable English owner's expertise in all matters porcelain is a draw in itself.
