1973 loves....La Piscine

Roubaix Museum of Art and Industry is one of our French stockists. This museum shop is situated in a beautiful museum that was initially an art deco swimming pool built in 1927. The baths were constructed as a place for people of different race/class to meet and interact. 

it now houses collections from the Roubaix National Museum. It still has lots of the original features and even still has the swimming pool situated in one of the gallery spaces.


not your average gift shop huh!
