Taking the Crooks Tour 7
My favourite part of Ricky's adventures in Paris is when the young man hands her the little box of fake pearls and says "Printemps". Believing that she has unwittingly become involved in a jewel heist, she combs the newspapers for news of the robbery. Of course, she finds out later that the young man was handing out adverts for the Printemps department store. She feels a little sheepish, but has no objections to doing a little shopping there! The store was founded in 1865 and is located on Boulevard Haussmann.
