Paris is a lot of things to a lot of travelers, but most everyone can agree that the city's shopping is unparalleled — a reflection of the effortless good taste Parisians are known for. And for that very reason, you wont finding us stocking up on typical souvenirs, like T-shirts and mini Eiffel Towers. We're too busy shopping Merci, a modern general store, for custom charm bracelets; L'Officine Universelle Buly for luxurious soaps and scented matches; and E.Dehillerin for classic French cookware. These are some of our favorite Parisian finds, available locally and online.
Repetto Ballet Flats
A quintessential symbol of Parisian style, Repetto has been crafting low-cut, grosgrain trimmed ballet flats since 1947.
Head to the Haut Marais for your own Parisian lucky charm. The bracelets come with pendants of all shapes and sizes, inscribed with various sayings and images, and strung on an array of materials, including leather and suede cord, velvet ribbon, and strips of floral fabric.
