In our neighborhood there was a cute boutique with hats in the window that would be perfect for spring. I don't think there is anywhere I would go that I could wear something like that but it sure would be fun.
We also went to a discount mall by the Paris Opera house. Even though things were still a little spendy they were more like our upper end department store in the US. They even had an art department but pretty much everything was something I could get cheaper here at home.
Tati was another multi-tiered shop we went to that we had heard you could get some good deals in. It is the French version of Ross. I bought some leggings and a top but I wouldn't go there again. Not really what you want to be spending your time doing in Paris. There are just too many other fun things to invest your time in.
The last little shop we went to was a unique vintage store. It was so small and so crowded, not only with good deals but tons of people. They had an upstairs, if you could call it that. The stairs where kind of like crawling up in a tree house. My niece went up there and couldn't get back down because her backpack was too big. It was quite the experience but definately a place to go when in Paris. I would have bought a plaid coat that I fell in love with but it was so heavy and I knew weight would be an issue coming home. I should have tried it on and taken a picture but imagine doing that in a crowded elevator. That is what it felt like in this store. I am laughing thinking about it. Maybe there is a time that is better to go than when we went?
