Pep’s Parapluie, Paris

Extracted from Paris: Small Shops buy yours here.

Inside the most colourful passage in Paris is Pep’s umbrella repair shop – the only dedicated such one in Europe. Thierry Millet is the man behind the counter, and he keeps busy repairing umbrellas, parasols and canes, as well as creating his own designs, including an umbrella shaped like the Eiffel Tower.
