Updated advice on shopping in Paris
- If you would like to go shopping in a traditional shop or boutique in Paris, go straight to le Marais. Besides being one of my favorite districts in Paris, in Le Marais, there are lots of characteristic, and unique shops. I recommend going to rue de La Verrerie to go shopping at La Montre du Marais. It is a shop that sells hundreds of watches of all time!
Once you are in Le Marais, you can easily take a walk along the Seine. There, you have the possibility to shop at Les bouquinistes, charming bookstands whose green structures are a symbol of Paris. Rare books and magazines of all times are some of the best souvenirs!
- Paris is the city of fashion because fashion is a tradition as well! The tailoring tradition is still alive in France, and you can even get unique clothes by shopping at French fashion designers’ boutiques. I suggest going to Heimstone and Jancoveck, in rue du Cherche-Midi, arrondissement 6, and in arrondissement 9 at Vanina Escoubet’s, in rue Henry Monnier. Another boutique to go shopping to is “Ysasu”, in rue André del Sarte.
- If you are looking for somewhere to buy something nice but also cheap, I suggest going to fancy malls in arrondissement 9. The Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, both on boulevard Haussmann, are the places where you surely find something you were looking for. Among the shops, I suggest taking a “trip” to Le Bon Marché in rue de Sévres: even if it is a department store, the quality of the product is higher than usual!
