Entry 04 30 17 | Obscura Day 2017
On Saturday, May 6th, over 170 events across 36 states and 25 countries will celebrate Obscura Day: a global celebration of exploration and discovery. The event is inspired and hosted by Atlas Obscura - "the definitive guide to the world's wondrous and curious places". Participants are giving talks, sharing stories, and hosting events that promote the curious and obscure.
When The Paris Market was asked to participate, we jumped at the opportunity to join a movement we've long promoted since our infancy.

Join us for an opportunity to begin your own personal curiosity cabinet. Create your own unique mounted butterfly cloche (with a real butterfly!) while enjoying a glass of champagne with your friends.

Entry 04 12 17 | The Social Butterfly
We've been fluttering about the store, placing a bit of Spring in every corner. Have you seen our new windows?
Our theme "The Social Butterfly" was inspired by the gradual 'buzzing' that happens on Savannah's Broughton Street in Springtime.
The warmer weather brings you out of your Winter cocoon, and Broughton Street is soon a swarm of locals and travelers alike.
The Paris Market team spend countless hours for weeks cutting out each paper butterfly by hand.
