Le March aux Puces de Vanves

So much more doable than the famous Puces de Clignacourt, this particular flea market is very good for jewelry, tchotckes, and fabric. I got a chandelier here at the end of a rainy day for  a steal.
Find it at:
Along avenue Marc Sangnier, between avenue de la Porte de Vanves and avenue Georges Lefenestre

Chez Mamie

What I like about this vintage store is that it’s full of the classic things you want to wear, thanks presumably, to the finely tuned aesthetic of its owners.

S/S 2011 NEW COLLECTIONS

A.P.C. Surplus

If you had a store that sold a constantly changing stock of discounted A.P.C. in your neighborhood, wouldn’t you visit all the time?  This shop is just next to the Jardin du Luxembourg, and I can’t overstate how often I would lurk here when I lived in the area.
Find it at:
4 rue de Fleurus, 75006.
tel.01 45 49 19 15

Free ‘P’ Star

This is my kind of thrift store.  There is minor editing by the proprietors (most of what you see is on trend), but it’s still crowded, disorganized, and pretty darn cheap.  It’s located in the heart of the Marais and open late by Paris standards (until 11 pm), so you can even go here to kill time before dinner.
Find it at:
8 rue Ste Croix la Bretonnerie, 75004.
tel. 01.42.76.03.72

Guerrisol

This is where I head for true, down and dirty thrift shopping.  At the beginning of the summer I stocked up on cotton dresses here, three euros each.
Find it at:
29-31, avenue de Clichy, 75017

Au petit bonheur la chance

Find it at:
13 Rue Saint-Paul
75004 Paris, France

Cuisinophilie

Find it at:
25 rue Bourg Tibourg
75004 Paris, France

French Trotters

This shop in the Bastille shares a similar concept with New York’s Opening Ceremony in that each season the owners voyage to a city they’re interested in, cherry-pick their favorite designers and local artists of that city, and bring it all back to Paris for your shopping pleasure. Always an inspiring mix of fashion and art here.

Find it at:
30 rue de Charonne,
75011, Paris
