A glorious den of knick-knackery that also offers custom gifts, plus brilliant creative workshop sessions for young children.

First opened on Rue Vavin, Tout s’Arrange moved to Rue Delambre in 2013, setting up shop just next door to a primary school. Now when class lets out, school children come to press their noses against the shop window, ogling the robots, mobiles, jewellery, peanut people, goofy glasses and other knick-knacks.   

Clients come to this crafty little boutique with their own ideas, photos, even materials – owner Nathalie creates custom pieces (often gifts), sometimes in the image of a cousin, child or girlfriend. The store also sells toys: tea-sets, miniature cars, dominos and silly wall clocks.

But the shop’s biggest draw is definitely its workshops. At a long low table, Nathalie oversees children (four per session) while they build – with scissors, glue, and cardboard – all manner of crazy objects. And each is given his or her own unique project, a house made of egg carton, a mirror, a magnetic maze, a board game or almost anything else.

The children’s workshop is €22, and runs on Wednesdays from 2pm-4.30pm, Saturdays upon request and every day during school vacations. Nathalie also gives hour-long jewellery-making workshops (€25 and open to all ages).
