Everything is done by chance ... almost!


One day, a host asked if any of the masks of the "African" room was for sale. Then it was the turn of a bedside lamp "Art Deco" room "Once upon a time".


One thing leading to another, guests left with a book, a few pots con fiture, one or two good bottles of wine ... and "La Boutique de Marie" was born. Many things come from Marie and Philippe travel , especially from Africa.


In Egypt, for example, these are fabrics, ceramics, brass, glass paste, wooden objects. But we must seek, rummage, find the right dealer, far from the tourist crowds. In Benin, Marie and Philippe provide employment to artisans, village women, seamstresses.


This gives a bric-a-brac of various objects: necklaces, bracelets, pendants, sculptures, everyday objects (stools, head of thrones small animals in earth). As they created an association there, the sale of these objects fi nance part of their humanitarian programs, including school feeding. And then there are the books of Philip.

Almost all are there, some written more than twenty years. Sixty titles in all, for many publishers. Our guests love to flip through, ask about their history, their anecdotes.


It's a bit all this, the store of the Claverie.
