We love to be surprised. And to come across nano+, a brightly adorned contemporary gift boutique, while strolling the venerable old cobblestoned streets of La Cité was unexpected indeed. This little shop is home to a variety of creative decor items, jewelry, bags, accessories and handmade papers—not least among the offering is the owner Marie Lise’s very own jewelry line. Most other featured designers are local to the Continent with a few exceptions like beautiful paper goods from Japan. All products have been selected with care; it seems that each item has a story that destined it for this store.

In short, this is an excellent address for those curious shoppers looking for something out of the ordinary.

Marie-Lise’s jewerly studio is smack-dab in the center of the boutique. It’s doesn’t get more authentic than this!

And although we do our best not to buy everything we love when doing our Lausanne Guide homework (we really do try), sometimes we can’t resist…who doesn’t need a Matterhorn cookie cutter, we ask?!? 

Add nano+ to your list of spots to explore in La Cité. It’s certainly worth a detour!
