Versailles Treasures From The Palace Gift Shop

Last week I showed you my recent visit to the magnificent Versailles Treausres From the Palace exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia. Every major exhibition has its own gift shop and of course Versailles is no exception. Except what a gift shop. Best. Gift shop. Ever. I totally wanted to move in. 

And why not? It has everything a girl needs. 

Something to drink. 

I do love some bubbles.
Especially a whole wall. 

I also love Lillet, but they didn't have any rouge.
Lots of other untried tipples too...
I could drink out of pretty cups.

There's plenty to wear. 

And there's heaps to do while I lounge about in tulle and tiaras. 
Some jigsaws. 
Naturally there's lots to read. 

I wouldn't go hungry either.

 I could burn some Lacroix candles and indulge in some luscious soaps and perfumes.

And dash off some notes on the OTT Lacroix cards.
When I did need to do something else I could pop down to NGA Play, where I can have some Versailles themed fun. 

The NGA had remodelled quite a bit since my last visit with lots of new features. I really do want to move in.

Saturday Snapshot is a wonderful weekly

Tulle and tiaras! My granddaughter would love that! Looks like an amazing gift shop. I could spend a lot of money there.

Oh my. Yes, definitely everything I need. I do hope it's on its way to America.

Lovely photos and very creative! I visited Versailles when I was 16 but I don't remember a gift shop. Loved visiting again through your photos!

I love that you could just move into the gift shop and stay there, feel like you're in France. Thanks so much for playing along with Dreaming of France. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme
