So i am an avid reader of Decor8 ... apart from the fact it's filled with all kinds of gorgeousness, the founder Holly lives in Germany & always provides information about wonderful shops & company's in & around Germany. Unfortunately she lives way north of me so a quick trip to some of her suggestions is the questions but one day i will make it up to Hannover.

So anyways one company she mentioned was Bloomingville so i emailed them to find out where the closest retailer to me was ... & Pantopolium it was. I love pretty shiny stuff for my house but having issues finding things over here so last Thursday (same day as my Metz visit) I headed off down to Saarlouis, about an hour from my house near Kaiserslauter to check out this shop.
First of all i should mention that Nicole, the owner is wonderful. So friendly & helpful ... not to mention letting me take photos of her fabulous little shop. I am seriously in love with it. I could spend way more than i did (& i spent a little). Her english is much better than she claims for any of you military people over here in Germany who may be reading this ... she takes VAT forms (I was her first).
So back to her shop ... here you can find items for literally every room in the house ... including the garden (it really kind of is room when you think about it) ... & they are all what i call "pretty & shiny". I found some wonderful table ware that i plan on heading back to buy more ... by a company called rice.

So whilst i could talk all day about my wonderful find ... i hope the photos will tell you everything you need to know. & for further information you can visit Nicole's website or simple check out the store for yourself.


  1. Looks very cute. I might have to drive up there and check it out. I keep finding the cutest places around every corner. I need to stay away from the big downtown and stick to the little villages.

  2. I want to shop!! That store is right up my alley!
