{eco style} vintage paris: for the thrifters at heart

Friday, April 7, 2017


i've been perusing some of paris's best vintage boutiques + thrift shops. this, eco boys + girls, is the way to pre-loved {aka, pre-worn or gently used apparel}. here we go, being green made easy:



chine machine
buy, trade or sell at chine machine. expect a rad selection, a line for the fitting rooms, and crowded quarters on top + bottom floors {because they know where to find the good stuff in paris}

montmarte // 100 rue des martyrs, 75018  // 01 80 50 27 66
second location // 10 rue des petites ecuries, 75010 // 01 77 17 03 62



vintage system
the owners of pretty box {a swanky, by-appointment-only vintage boutique that opened in 2002} have now brought us vintage system. expect a quaint atmosphere + unique items scoured from far ends of the earth. 

le marais // 17 rue barbette, 75003 // 09 80 79 95 05


mad vintage
expect ample room to stretch out at mad vintage {this place is extra large}, a well-organized selection of every possible style of clothing you can imagine {arranged by color, style + season} and no waiting in lines for the dressing rooms. this is a place you'll score at. every single time.

le marais // 66 rue st denis, 75001 // 01 40 39 06 14



paris favorites
there's a wide selection of second-hand garb + pre-loved gems to go around. i've offered a few of my faves above, but locals have favorites that they rave about boldly + brazenly. the people have spoken:

l e   m a r a i s   i s   c a l l i n g
vintage désir
looks like a hair salon, acts like a vintage shop. don't mind the "coiffeur" sign out in front. they know what's going on inside this svelte venue. vintage landslide within. 
le marais // 32 rue des rosiers, 75004 // 01 40 27 04 98

small space, big selection, three venues to choose from. ready, set, thrift. 
52 rue de la verrerie, 75004 // 01 42 76 03 72
61 rue de la verrerie, 75004 //  01 42 78 00 76
20 rue de rivoli, 75004 // 01 42 77 63 43


a r o u n d   t o w n
something old, something new. this sizable space mixes threads from new designers with vintage treasures. 
64 rue tiquetonne, 75002 // 01 42 21 17 37

this dutch vintage apparel chain has finally landed in paris. the folks at episode want you "be responsible + get used."  i suppose we can acquiesce. 
12-16 rue tiquetonne, 75002 // 01 42 61 14 65

these vintage menageries come highly recommended by a fellow lover of rummage sales + antiques. clothes, books, toys, furniture: everything vintage under the sun in one place, and on many dates. check schedule + locations for some of that antique lovin'. 

until next time, stay green dear hearts!
