No. 68: L’Artisans: PEP’s, Réparation de Parapluies

artisan: a worker in a skilled trade, especially one that involves making things by hand; craftsman, craftswoman, smith, wright, journeyman; one that produces something (such as cheese or wine) in limited quantities often using traditional methods.

I love that France is full of artisans and that the French government only allows craftspeople who have studied, apprenticed and passed all their exams to call themselves artisans.

Yesterday, I was delighted to visit PEP’s Réparation & Vente Parapluies, Ombrelles & Cannes, and meet the only artisan in Paris who will diligently and lovingly repair your broken umbrella, parasol, or cane.

  1. I like your countdown of the things you like about your life in Paris and in France. Very interesting and as I also live in Paris, I have a particular link to your stories. (Suzanne)

    • Thank you. It is good and bad to be counting down. Good because it makes me appreciate every day and every little thing…bad because I likely have less than 300 days left in this country I love so much. Still I am incredible grateful for every single minute. Thanks for reading.
