NYC & Paris Part III - We Thrift in Paris

Many of those who know me, know I can't go anywhere without checking out the thrift and vintage scene of any 
place i visit. Needless to say, when I was visiting Paris, I scoured the city in search of some local thrift shops 
and antique markets. I mean, how could I not; especially in a city that's known to set the most fashionable trends. 
I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to check out the goodies.

Since we spent most of the 8 days walking, discovering and roaming through all the ally's of Paris, it wasn't difficult 
finding the sweet spots. It was pretty obvious from the beginning that Paris had a love affair with the old and the 
eclectic, and I couldn't be more excited. I was completely enamored with the variety of classic pieces that I kept 
finding as I rummaged through every bin, dug through every pile and snuck my way through every overloaded rack.  

Below I've listed my top 3 thrift shops and antique market in Paris. These 4 spots covered all my must haves: 
affordability, style and an eclectic selection of goods. 

Awesome little shop located on 125 Bld St. Germain, 75006, Paris. Their concept "choose, weigh and takeaway". 
They sell secondhand clothing by the kilo. 

A cool little shop on 159 Route de Paris, Amfreville-la-Mivoie. Their concept "100 ethical, 100% recycled". 

These markets will blow your mind. There is so much to see, so give yourself a full day or two to really experience 
everything this wonderful place has to offer. 

This was my absolute favorite vintage shop. The place was absolutely packed, and for good reason. This place 
was really inexpensive and had an amazing selection of handbags, hats, scarves and clothing. I devoured 
the 1 euro bins and took home some awesome pieces which i will soon add to our LoveJoy Vintage website 
and Etsy shop. It's an absolute must-go.  

Have you guys visited any of these shops or have recommendations on others I may have missed? 
If so, i'd love to hear from you and would be happy to post your suggestions.
