That post unleashed a lot of memories, mainly the old well thumbed Bazaar Francais catalogue. I also remember fondly a very different WS that had walls of 3mm copper and shelves of Pillivuyt, including their beautiful painted terrines. It also brought back an old SLT with a glittering wall of shelves stacked with every imaginable piece of tinware, including several sizes of pate en croute molds. Of course classic French cooking occupied a much larger part of my repertoire then, but I miss the "world" created by those places. Don't get me wrong, I am totally fine with the newer goodies like silicone molds, clad cookware, and the inventions of things like the FP and the IB. I am just time tripping.
