(Relaxnews) – Francophiles and lovers of the City of Light will now be able to extend their trip to Paris and revisit memories with the city’s new online souvenir store.

When the city launches the virtual shop December 5, the city will join New York, Amsterdam and Dublin in offering travelers Paris-related items and memorabilia such as teas, books, designer chairs, fashion items and books.

Articles will include local luxury brands such as Mariage Freres, which has been making premium, loose leaf teas for nearly 160 years, and wooden sailboats modeled after the ones that sail in the fountains of the Luxembourg Gardens.

The online marketplace will also sell products made from local, creative and forward-thinking entrepreneurs such as a foldable bike helmet from Overade, and pretty cases made from recycled bike tires, with the help of disabled workers.

Services will be available in French, English, Spanish, German, Portuguese and Russian.
