Note: Always go to the Marche aux puces at Porte de Clignancourt. I believe it’s Saturdays and Sundays. Do the whole tour. You find tiny shops on the outside, and cool antiques along the tiny streets. It has some beautiful designer and collector’s pieces.

Didier Ludot
24 Galerie de Montpensier
75001 Paris, France‎

Note:  I haven’t been myself but I hear great things. And Mr. Ludot has agreed to let me shoot Amanda Harlech there. So that’s going to be major!


Come On Eileen
16 rue des Taillandiers
75011 Paris, France
01 43 38 12 11

Note: Fun digging on 2 floors. You can find weird, funny things there but some unexpected designer pieces too. And not too expensive.


Kiliwatch
64 Rue Tiquetonne
75002 Paris, France
01 42 21 17 37

Note: Probably the most commercial out of all the vintage stores. It’s set up like a denim store, with tons of easily accessible racks for easy browsing. No designers, although I found leather Chanel pants once for €100.

Thanx God I’m A VIP
12 Rue de Lancry
75010 Paris, France
01 42 03 02 09

Note: I haven’t been yet, but supposedly it’s amazing. A total departure from the usual cramped dusty confines of most Parisian vintage shops, this place is supposed to be sprawling and organized. 

Odetta
76 rue Tournelles
75003 Paris, France
01 48 87 08 61

Note: Known for a healthy mix of consignment and vintage, Odetta is a labelhound’s wet dream. I’ve seen stuff as new as Isabel Marant there, and as old as 70′s YSL accessories. Not to be missed.

Studio W
6 Rue du Pont aux Choux

75003 Paris, France
01 44 78 05 02

Note: The owner is a bit of a snob but he knows he has amazing stuff so I guess he’s allowed… Every piece is in excellent condition and worth a few hundred, so don’t go if you don’t want to spend, because you will!
