Vintage In Paris

Welcome to Vintage In Paris. You now have some of the best addresses in Paris for vintage shopping at your fingertips.

So where to start? Each area of Paris has it’s own unique vibe. Let us take you though our favourites.

Marais: A great place to start. Fashionable and cool, the Marais is a must visit destination. Boutiques are well stocked with quality items. It’s so easy to spend a day wandering here amongst the cafes, galleries and boutiques of the Marais.

Etienne Marcel: The streets around the busting Rue Montergueil are home to many boutiques catering to a fashionable crowd. Vintage shopping here is easy. Stores are well organised and the selections are thoughtfully put together. Great for mixing vintage and current trends.

Bastille: is home to Paris’ rock scene. A must visit area for vintage lovers who like it a little bit indie.

Canal St Martin/Oberkampf: is home to Paris’ fashionable bohemians “les bobos”.  This area is cool and laid back. Boutiques are hip and have an eye for current trends. This is one of our favourite parts of Paris to wander. It is less grungy than the very edgy and arty Belleville down the road.

Montmatre: is high up on the hill and is home to  Paris’ more charming vintage stores. Down below in Pigalle, the Rue des Martyrs just keeps getting hipper and hipper with many cool boutiques and cafes filling the formally seedy area.

Le Louvre: This well heeled part of town is where you go to find couture vintage.  Prices are high but you will find exquisite designer pieces here.

So now you are ready to start exploring Vintage In Paris. Let’s go shopping!
