Pep's Umbrella Repair Shop in Paris, France

Pep's Umbrella Repair Shop in Paris France

I took this photo during my trip to Paris last year.  This is a small umbrella repair shop - yes, he repairs umbrellas!  In the US, we tend to throw things away when they break, but in Paris, and really throughout Europe and the UK, it seems that people actually care about their possessions and try to make them last by repairing them.  What a wonderful concept.  I found many small boutique-type shops in Paris that specialized in crafts or repairs, something that is becoming a rarity in the US.  And the shopkeepers take a lot of pride in their crafts and their shops.  It's refreshing and lovely to see. 

Do you take pride in your profession?  Do you love what you do?  I do! I specialize in first time buyers and relocation buyers, and not only do I take a lot of pride in what I do for a living, I love what I do.  I love the feeling I get when a first time buyer is so excited about buying their first home.  I get excited for them when they sign the paperwork and they realize they have a new home that belongs to them.

Do you love what you do for a living?  Do you take pride in it?
