This friendly gentleman with a delightful sense of humor has a boutique, Les Abeilles,
selling honey and other "bee-products" on La Butte aux Cailles.
You can even buy all that you need to set up as a beekeeper.
He is an expert in les abeilles, miel, cire d'abeilles, a true apiculture parisien!
A purchase of honey and beeswax candles was made after a delightful visit with him in the petite shop. Two large vats of honey along with all the other products give the small space a sweet aroma.
Monsieur Schakmundès became my newest Paris friend,
and I will carry this portrait back to him in January.
