5.0 out of 5 stars Les bons trucs, 12 Nov. 2011
This review is from: The Best Vintage, Antique and Collectible Shops in Paris (Paperback)
A great guide for the inveterate browser. Think something between the upscale Louvres des Antiquaires and the junkiest Parisian flea markets and you'll get the sense of what this well-researched and very nicely illustrated shopping guide is focusing on. Author Edith Pauly is into stuff that is antique or vintage or maybe new or newish, but always cool, funky, decorative, useful and/or off-beat. It all looks pretty interesting as laid out in this 238 page, six inch square book. Not small (what reviewer thought that?), but portable if you're on an all day shopping crawl.

Store/market names and addresses are provided along with hours, websites and Metro stops. Index provided at the back of the book. The only thing missing is price range, but you can assume that most of the stores listed are relatively downscale compared to the afore-mentioned Louvres des Antiquaires and old-line Left Bank antique shops. Just about every neighborhood in Paris is represented in these listings. "The Best Vintage..." was published in 2008, so it would be a good idea to check out the websites given to be sure that stores are still in business before making the trip there.
