I'm heading to Lyon this weekend and need ideas on what to see, where to eat, what not to miss. Must grab a copy of the book My Little Lyon.

My Little Lyon sort son livre from My Little Lyon on Vimeo.

In the meantime, since I'm attending the trade show Le Salon Baby Lyon, there's a children's boutique I'd like to see. Called L'Instant Poétique, this is exactly the kind of boutique I dreamed of opening myself. In 2008 I wanted to open a small shop but don't have the funds for buying the rights to a space, for the monthly rent and salary for one employee. So that dream is on hold for now. Others have gone ahead of me and opened small shops as this that are well-curated, offering some of the most charming objects for children ... a balm to the eyesore of over bright primary colors and ugly plastic characters that scream out of most children's shops in the world. Below is a video of L'Instant Poétique:
