We love Maison Midi.
You can always count on finding gorgeous imported glassware and an eclectic mix of French pottery and fun linens. This weekend, they are having a big sale -- up to 30% off!!
Maison Midi is right next door to the American Rag store (which is also participating in the sale, so you can just-so-happen-to-wander in there as well!...). Plus they have an excellent bistro/cafe that is also conveniently connected to it. And the best part is...
they have TWO locations in So Cal, so if you're down south like me, you can go to the recently opened one in Fashion Island. Masion Midi Los Angeles is at 148 S. La Brea between First and Second St. The OC location is at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. It's kind of on the outer edge, underneath where the movie theaters are, across from Muttropolis.
