Mona, the pop-up co-working space created by My Little Paris, opens its doors one last time to the public today to sell off all the furniture and accessories that have graced the space over the last three months.
Despite arriving at 10am on the dot, the big queue snaking up the street suggested that most bargains would be snapped up before I even set foot inside. And indeed, the retro typewriter, velvet chairs and most of the inspirational quotes sported sold stickers or had been reserved by the time I got to them.
As expected, the big ticket items were slower to sell. If I had a fabulous Parisian apartment capable of accommodating a large sofa (and €1000 to spare) I might have been tempted to splash out, idem for the rather pricey but fabulous rugs.
What I really wanted was the printed Estée Lauder quote (“I never dreamed about success. I worked for it”), but someone else sadly got there before me.
There were, however, lots of Louise Roe vases, a large variety of plants and a fair few cushions still for sale so it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.
On until 7pm at 118 rue du Turenne, Saturday 30 December.
