Macron mugs sell out

LanguedocLiving, Sep 17

The Elysée Palace was open to visitors at the weekend, and over 20,000 people came as part of the Journées Européennes du Patrimoine.

Macron took the chance to launch a new range of Elysée Palace branded merchandise, including some rather fetching Macron mugs.

During the weekend, €347,000 went through the tills for the new range. The branded watches proved to be the most popular, followed by biros, and then the famous mugs.

Some of the profit will go towards restoring the Palace.
