Bamyan Galerie – colorful scarves and pashminas at reasonable prices. No visit to Paris would be complete for the gal pals without a stop at our favorite place to buy unique scarves. The colors will amaze you and the quality is quite good. The friendly couple that own this shop will show you many different ways to tie your scarves that shows them off, making your outfit chic and distinct.

The scarves are stiff in their natural state and can do amazing things when tied in interesting ways. If you don’t like the stiffness they will instruct you on how to wash them and then turn them back to their original texture. The prices are so good that I always purchase at least two – one for me and one for gal pal Lisa if she isn’t along on the stop to here. If she saw mine and wanted it, she might just pack it “by accident” in her suitcase so really this is just to ensure I get home with one of these gems.
