The Parisian Music Box French Store or Boites a Musique Anna Joliet
In the heart of Paris in the antiquated passage way of Perron where obscure stores are tucked away next to cosy bars, lies a tiny store dedicated to music boxes – The Parisian Music Box French Store or Boites a Musique Anna Joliet.
Boites a Musique Anna Joliet has been owned for more than 30 years by a petite blonde Madame, Anna Joliet, who perhaps sometimes sanguine at the repetition of her trade, is still passionate about each one of her delicate and beautiful music boxes.
Peering outside of the store there are fascinating rows of music boxes and curios mostly from Switzerland beckoning the gazer to venture in. On offer are an array of music boxes that transport you to another era. Gilded bird cages hang from the room and tiny, very simple traditional music boxes of all sizes allow you to purchase your own tune to play.
Perhaps you are seeking a traditional French styled music box or gift set for a little one. See Little French Heart’s Music Boxes by Moulin Roty, delivered worldwide.
Whether it’s Edith Piaf’s La Vie en Rose or a more traditional tune such as Beautiful Dreamer that brings charm to your world, there is chance that it will be here. And if not, it’s still a wonderful experience to visit a store that holds onto the Belle Epoque charm that is at once so personal and so French.
