Bastille Day Festival! July 19th & 20th!

Oh, my pets, it is a mere 21 days away! Are you soooo excited? You know we are!

Just think, in 21 days you could win a seven days in an incredible apartment in Paris, you could judge who has the best grilled cheese in the city, you could watch films from Atlanta Film Festival, see dogs dressed up, drink moonshine, flirt with burlesque dancers, see a puppet show, dance in Le Maison Rouge to live music, and if you are really lucky…if you try and plan, and train, and are creative and smart- you just may win:

A Sweet PBR Wakeboard and the title of :
Master Super Smarty Pants!
As declared by Paris on Ponce Bastille Day 2014!
(Yes- there is a trophy…Ummm…And a WAKEBOARD!!!)

“Whaaaa….?” You say? “How? How can I prove to my snarky friends and family that what I have always known to be true?!?” (That you are the “Master Super Smarty Pants…Stay with me…)
Well, my darlings, are you handy with a compass and a pencil? Do you like the Beltline? Are you smart, clever and daring? Do you enjoy fun?

If you have answered “YES!” to at least half of this then you are in for a treat!

Starting at 1:00 on Saturday, July 19th,
you and one other adult (You can have as many kids with you as you like, but they are really only going to steal your wakeboard…) will set off on the 1 1/2 hour adventure of your lives! (Your lives!!!)

In conjunction with Clue Town Scavenger Hunt Books and sponsored by our amazing bohemian friends at
Pabst Blue Ribbon
(Um, yes…there might be a beer or two awaiting your victorious arrival), we present to you the

Four Letter Word Bastille Day Festival Scavenger Hunt!!!
Ah…hem… you say… Four Letter Word? “Oui! Oui!”, we say, but perhaps not the one that immediately sprang to mind. This new foundation is an athletic charity for veterans returning from combat with a much worse four letter word: P.T.S.D.
Check them out here!

Here’s how it works:
1. You can pre-buy a Clue Town Bastille Day Book (complete with compass and pencil) for $10 anytime before July 19th, or buy it the day of for $12. Proceeds go to Four Letter Word.
2. Find a clever friend that you don’t mind sharing the fame, glory, and the wakeboard with. Or-if all of your friends are basically fun but pretty dumb (a.k.a. perfect “dating” material), then go it solo. (Everyone loves a single with a wakeboard…)
3. Be here by 12:45 on Saturday.
4. Win!!!!

3rd Annual

Bastille Day Festival approaches!

The Story of Bastille Day as told by the experts at Paris on Ponce

Once upon a time, in a magical land filled with poodles and baguettes there was a king. He wasn’t known as a very bright king, but he was a snappy dresser and was known to dance a mean Charleston.

He was married to a beautiful princess who was renowned as a lover of sparkly shoes and very big hair. They lived in a très grande castle and watched with a cautious eye over the lowly commoners that worked their fields. See, these people were peasants, and entitled peasants at that! They had a lot of high falutin’ ideas about owning their own land, voting and not having to turn over their brides to the local clergy and noblemen on their wedding night. Ingrates.

So then there was this thing where the whole country ran out of food for a while (probably those dumb peasants were eating too much) the queen apparently recommended that they eat cake instead. Which is smart, because anything with frosting is way more fun than anything without. (She was a hoot, that girl!)

Well, those ruffians couldn’t appreciate her sound advice (probably lactose intolerant), plus they were ticked off that she had wisely incarcerated some troublemaking writers who were stirring the waters with crazy talk about unfair taxation and getting to own one’s own children. So what did they do? On July 14th, 1789 they went to the Bastille prison and just let everyone out! Derange! The streets were overrun with theories and concepts of “Liberté!”, “Egalité!” and “Fraternité!”. They got so drunk on their equality kick that they actually asked the beautiful queen and her dancing king to maybe go somewhere else.

Then they accidentally cut off their heads. It happens.

Oh well, the important thing is that every year those crazy French people celebrate those kooky notions of brotherhood, equality, and liberty for all (Which, surprisingly, has worked out pretty well.) with a big fat party. And since we, at our little bohemian playground are full of such similar fancy notions, we want in on it too! So come and celebrate with us!

This year is going to be HUGE! Mark your calendars and apologize in advance to those that you may bring with you- because on Saturday, July 19th and Sunday July 20th
we are about to pour a big fat glass of French-ish nonsense all over you. Keep an eye out for updates on everything that we have planned!

Paris on Ponce & PoP Marché: Surprisingly- smarter than you would think…

Oooey, Gooey, Drippy, Cheesy goodness coming straight at you’re WIDE open mouths, Atlanta!

Great Grilled Cheese Off

Well darlings, it’s right around the bend. Eeeek! you know what we are talking about. You’ve heard the murmurs, the whispers of anticipation, the fussing and the shuffling…Because we are rapidly approaching the Paris on Ponce’s

Third Annual Bastille Day Festival!
Saturday July 19th and Sunday July 20th!

Dancing ladies! Juggling men! Fire! Dangerous acts of Nonsense! Food! Drinks! Shows in Le Maison Rouge on both Saturday and Sunday night! A Ponce-y Scavenger Hunt! Puppy Adoptions! Puppet Shows! Magic! A Dog Costume Contest! Films! Sales! Pop-Up Shops!

Annnnnnd….The Great Grilled Cheese Off!
“OH- Mon Dieu!” you are exclaiming! “So much…uh, how do you say…?..AMAZING!!!”
(Because your very continental in your exclamations of bewildered surprise…)

So there is a whole lot that is going to happen in these two magical days- so let’s focus on one at a time. “The Great Grilled Cheese Off” is an extremely important competition that is a city-wide search for the very best, most delicious Grilled Cheese sandwich that you have ever willingly let drip down your smiling chin. This grilled cheese will be capable of parting clouds on a rainy day, of curing migraines, of repairing broken relationships, and basically solving all of the world’s problems by the second bite. But here is the ultimate question- Where does this magical combination of fresh baked gluten-ed madness and dripping golden dairy live in Atlanta?
(Translation: Who makes the best grilled cheese sandwich?)

That’s up to you! Nominate your favorite pub, restaurant, or sandwich artist, we will pick the top 7 (just send us a e-mail reply) and if they are indeed honored enough to come and join us- then on Saturday, July 19th, beginning at 3 p.m., we will munch and tour the vast range of grilled cheese delicacies, and you will pick the winner! They will be then showered with kudos, hup-hup-hoorays, honor, glory, a trophy and the titled declaration of
The Best Grilled Cheese in ATL!!!!

Paris on Ponce: Not denying that we are cheesy.

“Hats?” You say…”Toppers?” You querie…”Fascinators?!?” You ponder in fascination…Yep, kids- we got ‘em. Stovepipes, helmets, bowlers, fedoras, newsboys, bonnets, and even the occasional sombrero has been seen floating through. Why? Because hats make people happy- and that’s a fact.

In other news- starting on Thursday, November 7th and extending through the holidays we will be open every Thursday until 9:00! We may even have a few little treats up our sleeves for you late night shoppers. So whether you find yourself in a sudden millinery crisis, or just want to start getting a jump on the holidays while you can still concentrate (Hats totally help your concentration, btw-it’s a fact.), we’ll be here for you.

Paris on Ponce: No longer top-less.
(Ah-cha-cha!)

Let’s welcome White Glove Gallery with 20% OFF!

Ladies who linger. Ladies who lunch. Ladies of the divine- I am calling you.

Ladies who perfume. Ladies who perfect penmanship. Ladies who pencil skirt- can you hear me?

Yes, darling, you- you of graceful entrances, of train cases, of one-hundred brushstrokes. You of bubble baths, of white gloved hands, of seamed stockings, of coquettish glances, and of very dry martinis…Yes, I am crooking one well manicured finger in your direction- Can you see me?

No? No you can’t? What?!? I’M RIGHT HERE! The one in the rumpled red dress with the puppy hair on one shoulder, and geez- I swear I just did these nails!…The one perpetually rolling her eyes as I answer another telemarketer call while hopping on one foot looking for the other heel and trying not to run my last pair of hose…The one uncorking the bottle of Pino and just taking a swig because I just can’t bare to wash a glass. (And that’s just the kind of day it’s been!)….Oh, yes, right here! It’s me! The hot mess that works, lives, and loves in this kooky madcap life that we all trying to find a little elegance and peace in.

But you know what else I do when I make the time? Buy myself a single red balloon and parade around. Wear pearls and fishnets. Care about underpinnings, and find a lovely little gift for someone-just because. Wear a ribbon in my hair, perfect my eyeliner, and celebrate all of the amazing women that have gone before us, setting a standard of beauty, poise, grace and gentility. And while in our heart of hearts, we probably know that Sophia may have looked like hell when she had the flu, Marilyn may have contorted herself into all kinds of squishy shapes getting those dresses on, and Ava Garner, it’s said, had a mouth like a sailor and was a pretty wild drunk, we are not concerned. We are not concerned, because in short minutes, they were perfect- just as perfect as anyone is that tries. That honors themselves, and that pauses, smiles, and applies a little lip liner with purpose on occasion.

In that tradition, we are ecstatic to introduce to you our newest little shop: White Glove Gallery. Between the fabulous print art, the clothing, the accessories, and perfection that is post war America we invite your inner flirt out to play. And in celebration of your new-found love of all that is powdered, curvy and enchanting, this weekend only:

Everything in White Glove Gallery is 20% Off!

XOXO,

Your little PoP Marche

And you are saying to yourself- madness?!? Goodness- what kind of mayhem are those crazy kids up to at the ye ole’ PoP Marché. And then your mind spins to a complete panic: LABOR DAY! Eeeeek! When did this happen? Wait-what is “Labor Day” anyways?
Quick- pile on all of your white to ivory attire before you explode into a social pumpkin come Tuesday, and we can walk you through this…

There are many theories of why this “labor-free” day exists. Here are our top three contenders:

Theory Numero One: Labor day was a ruse pushed through congress to calm down a bunch of mildly disgruntled union workers after President Grover Cleveland was blamed for the death of a number of workers at the Pullman Strikes of 1896. (That sounds like crazy talk.)

Theory Numerico Dos: Labor day is a celebration of mothers everywhere and the “laboring” that it takes to bring your sweet smiling face into this world. This is also why you wear white before- because that is a messy business- and you know how it is when you wear white- you are basically just asking to get messy…or have a baby. (Yes- this seems like a pretty solid theory…)

Theory Number Trois: Labor day is in honor of the makers of our great American sauces that make outdoor cooking (A Labor Day Standard) possible. Let us expound- ketchup- oh, where would crinkle fries be without you? (Not in this mouth!) BBQ sauce- just try and have a BBQ without this magical peppery sweetness. (Good luck, cheapo!) And to those culinary wizards in the Hidden Valley- let me personally say that had you not combined buttermilk and specialty herbs and spices, many of us would never know what it is to eat “healthy”. (Just iceberg lettuce for me, please!) Really, condiments are doing all of the work really- think about it. And so, to those artisans that craft new ways to make our foods unrecognizable- a most generous thank you and Happy Labor Day! (Yep-this is definitely the winner!)

Plus! Drum roll Please…….SALES! WILD MADCAP KOOKY CRAZY SALES! JUST FOR YOU!
10%-40% off store wide, Saturday through Monday.
Open regular hours- because we care.

Paris on Ponce: Occasionally, a little drunk with idiocy…But fun, very fun. (But drunk, definitely a little drunk sometimes…)

Paris on Ponce: More secret rooms coming out to play! (Get your craft on, my little budgeteers!)

Hey Pinsters! D.I.Y.ers! H.G.T.V.ers! Have we got a treat for you! As you may know, we have rooms and rooms of hidden treasures here, and this weekend we are throwing open the doors of our unfinished warehouse room.

Console tops make great vanities, buffets, or-if you’re feeling wild- even console tables! And we’ve got legs, rolls of fabric, and glass tops as well! Wait?!? What?!?

And for all of my budget conscience darlings who are not so handy with a can of spray paint and a screwdriver, we have drummed up a little something for you too!

Paris on Ponce: Priority numero uno: Blowing. Your. Mind.

It’s all about re-purposing, retaining, sustainable living that modernizes and surprises while telling true stories of our past- right? It’s about knowing what’s in your home and honoring your community- correct? It’s about making something newly functionally beautiful out of something that was once the heart and soul of a working family.

This is BarnBeautiful. Every piece is handcrafted from antique wood and fixtures from old barns. Every barn is photographed and it’s story documented. And then- get this, mon petit préservationnistes- every item is secretly seared with a serial number that you can quickly look up online! Il est fou, droit? Droit?!? Annnnd….Custom work is available and quick as well!

The result is a perfectly unique gift, whether for yourself, or for someone else who loves true history, and preservation. We welcome them to our little playground, and hope that you have time to pick up a bit of this incredible interpretation of modern living.

Oh, mes petits voyageurs, my little bohemians! Have you been lingering, stretching, and luxuriating in style in this exotic heat and tropical rains?

No? Well, let’s ask ourselves why not? It has been warm, yes? And the rains have been beautifully fierce, correct? And you are a rarified, sexy being that is smart enough to know that you alone choose your reaction to outside influences? That you make the choice to enjoy life (or not) to the fullest at every possible moment, right? And you are well traveled enough to know that living like royalty can be done on a gypsy dime? Yes- yes you do…You may have just forgot for a moment. So rather than dream of an exotic vacation that may not happen any time soon, let us help bring the exotic to you my darlings…Because that is what we do.

From Kerala to Tamil Nadu, from Karnataka to Pondicherry the beautiful souls of Gypsy Temple have collected printed and embroidered pillows, vintage saris, harem pants, leather bound journals, soaps, and finely quilted velvet wingbacks. A brightly embroidered poof, a temple archway, a vintage trunk, a kantha quilt, a velveteen ottoman, candles that make you breath with your soul, embroidered sandals or an incredible bright sitting pillow launches you on the path that will change your trapped humid living room into a tropical lounge of seduction and bliss. And if you have a friend who has strayed off the path of simple joys and peace, a lovey scarf or a strand of vinyl record beads will ease them back to a place where we all should be- a place where the small wonders of the universe are still striking, beautiful and valuable. Where we get out of our little paperwork filled shells and the search for the perfectly mass produced extruded fiber tee-shirt and marvel at the fact that some hardworking person made these beautiful objects with their own hands, and now, and very afford-ably, they are being laid in yours with reverence and love. Namaste.

Guests will be surrounded by exciting and sensual pole dance, belly dance, burlesque and hoop performances and other bohemian entertainers whose bodies have been meticulously hand painted in dazzlingly vivid color.

A delightfully decorated Parisian marketplace and bar will be offering exquisite spirits, sinful confections, specialty art & make-up supplies and exotic surprises. Living art never looked and tasted so divine!

Paris on Ponce: Doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well.

Springtime is for Birds and Gardens. How about 20%-30% OFF!?!
(Yey! Thank you Paris on Ponce! You’re welcome, mes bébés.)

Little birds. Les petits oiseaux. They are some of the most beautiful, magical creatures ever created. The last few days they have been flocking all around our little Paris on the Ponce- dipping in our fountain, mocking one another, playing, courting.  They are so strange, yet so familiar. To look into a bird’s eyes is to see curiosity, fragility, and pride incarnate. Just like us, they play, they build, they nest, and they have the intelligence and bravery  to change their environment with the seasons. What would a garden be without their fascinating language? Leur chant d’oiseau?So whether you are thinking of celebrating our feathered friends either inside or out, we are celebrating all that our little feathered friends give us this weekend with a 20%-30% off garden and bird related items!Perhaps as well, we love our little songstresses because they have the ability and will to explore the heavens. This year we lost our beloved friend Gordon Stringer. A well known and beloved decorator, Gordon was a fixture around Paris on Ponce and is greatly missed. While he is exploring his next adventure, we are honored to be able to assist his family by selling some of his estate. Beginning today, please come by and see if one of his many treasures may become one of yours. Just like Gordon, it is sure to be blessed with his forever lovely intentions and great cheer.

Paris on Ponce: Constantly enchanted.

“Under the sea
Darling it’s better
Down where it’s wetter
Take it from me
Up on the shore they work all day
Out in the sun they slave away
While we devotin’
Full time to floatin’
Under the sea”
-Best Movie Ever

Take me there. To the sun, the hot sand that envelopes my toes and dissolves the priority of an overpriced pedicure. To the waves, crashing, distroying, creating. Teeming with death, birth, and more life than I can wrap my tiny human brain around. To a place so wide and fierce and beautiful that I finally get over my own nonsense for a minute- and I come again to a place where I am simply…just…human. A creature no more or less special than this very moment, this sound, this blessed day.

One beautiful breath away from the next grand triumph or failure, and the knowledge that I alone judge it as such…Except when you are unprepared for bikini season and just go for it- then yeah, other people have opinions. So caftans- that’s an option, right?

Paris on Ponce: Not trying on bikinis just yet- ’cause that’s just mean.

Welcome Blanca Rosa Home with their first Trunk Show!

Step Two: While whistling a happy tune, fling birdseed and cheese all around your home for all of the Disney cleaning birds and mice….Then get out quick! (They like their privacy.)

Step Three: Ignore any phone calls from partners or housemates (They are probably just stunned at all of the magic that is happening in your home right now.) and come on down to Paris on Ponce to start furnishing your newly cleaned home, because-Check this out!
