Paris is the world capital of women’s fashion, and shopping for vintage clothing or accessories has become a lifestyle as well as a "look." As the interest in vintage clothes evolves into an interest in vintage furniture and objects, the shops that cater to the vintage crowd have taken on a unique décor and atmosphere. This is the first book that explores the vintage lifestyle and offers a guide to Paris’s incredible trove of stores. Paris’s huge number of original and charming vintage clothing shops offers a shopping experience beyond the ordinary. Until now, these hidden gems have been known only to the discerning few. Each shop is described in detail—its history, focus, and general price range—with photographs that capture its unique ambience. The book showcases over 100 shops, organized by neighborhood and cross-referenced with recommendations for nearby bistros, cafes, and bars.
