Come on I'm taking you to Caen ... Even though I've never been there, I know that there are beautiful things!
I'm not going to tell you about the abbey or the castle, but about an owl shop. BONNE PIOCHE, store specialized in the decoration of nursery and the universe of the child.
# How was the "Bonne Pioche" shop born? since when ? What was your decision to open a shop specializing in children?
Good Pickax opened five months ago now. This project is a total professional reconversion. After almost 10 years as HR manager, I was very envious to undertake, to create. By becoming a mother (Daphné 3 years and 1/2, Marceau 4 1/2 years), I discovered a very creative, very dynamic universe.
By wanting to decorate carefully the room of my children, I quickly realized the shortage in the matter in my city. I wanted beautiful, minimalist and refined style, privilege French designers.
Buying on the internet seemed paradoxical for a quest for "authenticity" so I thought the idea of having them meet in a shop could be great. More than the world of early childhood, it is the idea of the family that seduces me.
# How do you find the pretty things that are in your shop?
Do you have salons like Playtime or Maison et Objet? on Instagram?
on the recommendation of your customers?
My selection is made according to the favorites. I try to keep some consistency for the refined style, modern, a bit Scandinavian. Finds are mainly on the web and social networks, but also via the living rooms of designers (hotel bohemian in Paris), or Playtime. I am also very attentive to the recommendations of the clients.
# What is your best sale?
The musical mobile A star in my cabin> blue rocket + Yann Tiersen in melody = the perfect combo
# Stéphanie can offer you a selection of 6 articles for one baby boy's birth gift?
1 - an April Eleven swing
2 - A body or sleep well Heart butter with golden brioche embroidery
3 - The phosphorescent cushion
4 - The wool word Charlie and June: the personalized name (unavoidable
for our generation ego bobo)
5 - Wild Hand Blanket: Soft Alpaca, Demented Design
6 - A Petit Picotin balloon cushion: sweetness and voluptuousness in the room
children, to adopt for all other rooms of the house
# Your ideas outings with children on Caen? Or lunch? or take the
I do not particularly have a kids friendly place where I go to Caen
(idea to create) with my two little wolves who are on the move.
The sea and the countryside are about ten kilometers, so as soon as
the opportunity presents itself we ride the balance bike and the bikes and go
for the fresh air (must have the romp these little animals there). And for
the days when it's really impossible to put your face outside the cinema
Lux always has great programming for the bush, the pool
municipal also offers a beautiful play area.
The shop is located rue Froide and it's not a coincidence, very street
family friendly because pedestrian, picturesque and historic district that
is full of small, non-franchised stores.
For lunch: I go to the Cantine des Quatrans, simple welcome and
friendly, cooking with products from the market that comes out of all
usual cards (but no frills)
Shopper: Claude's dressing room> second-hand clothes in super
state, current and refined at a small price (big and small)
Order a bouquet: Camaieu Fleurs> poetic atmosphere and super chic
Revisiting my decor: The girls of the Blue Corner have everything you need
Drink a scoop: Chez Paulette or Le Casier (picture)
