Looking for somewhere to buy pearls, sequins and fabrics on the cheap? La Droguerie is not the shop for you. Here, haberdashery comes at a premium and with a lot of fuss.
The shop has a deserved reputation for being very thoroughly stocked – everything you might ever need for sewing, from multicoloured buttons to bright green feathers, can be found here. But lest you'd even think of touching the displays with your mortal hands, be warned that there's a strict browsing protocol: if an object takes your fancy, you have to queue at the till until a shop assistant is ready to help you. Waiting times can be long, so bring a fully charged smartphone to pass the time and avoid the Saturday rush. On the plus side, the staff are knowledgeable and willing to assist you with any queries you might have. La Droguerie works best, then, if you come with a clear idea of what you need. Otherwise, go elsewhere.
