Along the way I saw more intriguing things.
This gentleman was carving and repairing vintage ivory statues! He was so concentrated on his work and so cute.
Macarons from another shop.
If I didn't have the bag of Pierre Herme in my hand, I'd probably go into the shop and get a few macarons at this point, but I had my mind set on the Pierre Herme macarons, so I only looked around the shop and enjoyed the festive-treat-heaven-atmosphere.
A pile of huge meringue cookies!
And a lot of cute chocolate art pieces.
Oh my. There were so many treats and sweets!
We continued walking down the street, and a couple doors down I was stunned to see a huge chocolate gorilla in the window!
I think this dude was taller than me! He was sitting in the window and looking down at everyone that walked by and admired him.
I wonder if anyone would buy him and eat him up.
With the Pierre Herme bag in my hand, I didn't get any additional treats despite all the lovely temptations from all the cool shops I passed by.
