Marche Aux Puces Saint Ouen

This market was founded in 1870 and hosts nowadays 15 different specialized stores, 2000 traders and more than 5 million visitors per year. Classed as a protected architectural landscape area, it is placed in the 18e arrondissement and is one of the biggest antique markets in the world. A reference to all the antiquities dealers, the market is becoming more and more popular among young people interested in arts and interior design, but also in vintage clothing and accessories.

Kilo

Kilo is a concept store that advocates for an ethical and responsible fashion industry.  With six stores in Paris, two more in other French cities, one in Athens and two more in Japan, it seems that their awareness is becoming more and more shared among fashionistas. Each of the stores in Paris specializes in different styles: sporty, bright-colored Adidas and Nike tracksuits, T-shirts and sneakers from the 70’s to the 00’s, to loads and loads of Levi’s denim shorts and jackets. The items are labeled with different colors depending on the price range, and weighted at scales to establish the final cost.

Vintage Desir

Also known as “the vintage hairdresser’s” (or coiffeur vintage) due to the old sign that still holds on the façade, this is one of the least well kept secrets of the vintage scene in Paris. Typical French striped T-shirts, brand bags, or scarves with a selling price starting at only 5 euros, we understand how it has become as popular. Best way to beat the crowd -– stop by durning the work week, it will make it easier for you to find the Parisian look of your rêves.

Thnx God I’m a VIP

Now the owners here do know what a good marketing campaign is. One of them being an electronic music DJ, her business partner promoted the brand throwing huge parties at legendary venues in Paris and calling them ‘Thnx God I’m a VIP’ sessions. It was all a success and afterwards their baptized their store the same way. They have the store divided in two sections, the first one where they sell the luxury pieces from Dior or Yves Saint Laurent, with really good prices and always well preserved, and the second one, only open during the weekends, where you will find more basic, second-hand, vintage items at a really competitive price.

Odetta

Excellent curated furniture and haute couture vintage pieces. The layout in Odetta is so accurate that, from the outside, it has the looks of an art gallery, rather than those of a messy second-hand store.  Most of their products date between the 50’s and the 70’s, but they also design their own accessories and quality shoes.

Come on Eileen

It looks a tiny little store from the outside, but don’t judge a book by its cover, once on the inside there are two more floors to search and find unique, luxury, vintage items, such as Dior and Chanel bags, YSL scarves, Hermès coats… and so on. Prices are higher than in other second-hand joints, but the quality – price ratio is definitely worth it.
