Cheap Shopping: Paris Thrift Stores

(Kilo Shop)

There's nothing more satisfying than finding a treasure at a thrift shop. Sure, you may have to dig a bit, but when you find a gorgeous 1950s summer dress for 10€ or a Mad Men-era handbag for 5€, it feels like hitting the jackpot. Here are a few of my favorite Paris thrift stores:


(Chinemachine)

Le Marais (4e Arrondissement)
Kilo Shop: 69-71 Rue de la Verrerie
Frip'irium:  2 rue de la Verrerie
Vintage Desir: 32 Rue des Rosiers

Free'P'Star: 8 Rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie
Hippy Market: 21 Rue du Temple

(Chinemachine)

Montmartre (18e Arrondissement)
Chinemachine: 100 Rue des Martyrs
By Flowers: 86 Rue des Martyrs

Oberkampf (11e Arrondissement)
La Petite Fripe: 118 Rue Oberkampf

And here are two other places that I love in the Marais which are slightly more expensive (100€ dresses), but are top-notch quality and still cheaper than many haughty "vintage" places:

Gilda: 51 rue du Temple
Mam'zelle Swing: 35 rue du Roi de Sicile

Happy hunting!
