The Other Bookstore: The Abbey Bookshop

(note: this post also appears on Paris Cheapskate's partner site, Untapped Paris)

You know I’m obsessed with Shakespeare and Company, the English bookstore situated across the Seine from Notre Dame. But did you know there’s another, tinier, equally charming English-language bookstore just a couple of blocks away? I recently stumbled upon The Abbey Bookshop and was delighted to stock up on some new reads while trying to avoid making every book around me tumble onto the floor.

Cheap Drinks: Café Des Anges

I popped into this lovely little café the other day while walking around just North of the Bastille and discovered the neighborhood gem that is Café des Anges. 

Far from a tourist hangout, you'll usually find the tables occupied by newspaper-reading locals. I haven't tried their food yet, but you can bet I'll be going back: This 25cl of rosé only set me back 5€.

Café Des Anges
66 Rue Roquette, 75011 Paris
Métro: M1, M5, M8 to Bastille

Cheap Shopping: Interloque Junk Shops

Maybe it's my fervent garage-saling background, but I love junk shops: those cluttered, disorganized places guaranteed to make you sneeze from dust and hopefully give you a kitschy knick-knack to go home with for a couple of bucks. New York is full of them, but I never thought I'd find a junk store in Paris. Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon Interloque Ressourcerie.
