THE BEST SECOND-HAND STORES IN PARIS

ยท WishUpon Picks

Yes, vintage is undeniably in fashion. But for once you wonโ€™t go to your favorite mall to redo your wardrobe: let's go to the second-hand stores!

In addition to offering you unique items that you won't find anywhere else, you can save the planet by buying items that are already worn, and...you will also save money.

Certainly, some people consider second-hand clothes "dirty" or not very trendy, but we tell you this: nothing more fashionable at the moment than vintage garments. In addition to that, if you are in Paris, you will have a lot of choices given the number of clothing stores you can find there. To save you some time, we have selected a dozen of the best clothes shops in Paris, according to several criteria (style & quality of clothes, welcome of the staff, and prices) in various districts.

WISHUPON team was pleased to walk through Paris, and also wants Paris foreign lovers and visitors to discover those amazing places.

The article is divided into 4 parts, which allow all fashionistas to find what they are looking for, from the most adventurous to those who prefer not to go too far. And you can also bring your companion because the clothing stores are not only for you, ladies!

EPISODE โญ† Visited by the editor

ยฉ Anousparis (https://www.anousparis.fr/a-shopper/5-friperies-pour-shabiller-a-moins-de-20-euros/)

๐Ÿ’™ Affordable prices ๐Ÿ’™ Many "classics" for shoppers afraid of eccentricity ๐Ÿ’™ Friendly and bilingual English-speaking salespeople ๐Ÿ’™ Easy to find a specific article

The editorial opinion: โ€œI particularly liked the choice among the different categories of items. You are sure to find everything you are looking for, from velvet body to overalls. Prices are unique on item selections by categories (for example, same price for shirts, shoesโ€ฆ), so for some types of clothing it is really worth it financially, but for others, it makes the price a little excessive sometimes. Everything is generally in order and the clothes are clean and sorted. We appreciate the basement entirely for men's clothing.โ€

Our heart stroke: Incredible selection of pouches (10โ‚ฌ for each of them!)

Address: 12-16 Rue Tiquetonne, 75002 Paris (Chรขtelet Station)

KILIWATCH

โญ† Visited by the editor

๐Ÿ’™ A must-see concept store in Paris ๐Ÿ’™ Quality clothes very stylish ๐Ÿ’™ You can find vintage brand clothing, and globally, all the possible and imaginable brands ๐Ÿ’” High prices

The editorial opinion: "Impossible to live in Paris without having heard of Kiliwatch. This huge concept store gathers so many vintage pieces that they hold most of their finds in minimum 2-3 copies, even for rare items! I was particularly impressed by the "vintage cyclist" section or their huge collection of kepi. The decoration is very original and neat. You feel compelled to take pictures in a place like this. But as soon as you catch a label, you instantly lose it: the prices are extremely high, far too high for second-hand clothes. Moreover, the monumental size of this shop, as well as the army of salesmen at the disposal of customers, make Kiliwatch a factory much more than a clothing store. โ€œ

Our heart stroke: The selection of men's dressing gowns

2- Typical โ€œLe Maraisโ€ second-hand stores (traditional neighborhood)

3rd & 4th arrondissements

BIS BOUTIQUE SOLIDAIRE โญ† Visited by the editor

๐Ÿ’™ Innovative concept ๐Ÿ’™ BIS Boutique Solidaire encourages social and solidarity work: it employs people in precarious situations ๐Ÿ’™ Clothing carefully selected and all washed ๐Ÿ’™ Nice staff ๐Ÿ’™ (Very) affordable prices

The editorial opinion: โ€œWe like the dual objective of the shop, both environmental and economic. The first boutique was born in 2012, in Le Marais - it is the boutique we visited - and since then, two other stores have bloomed, to show how successful the concept is! Clothes look like new, they are washed and sorted by color, and you can find large mirrors, pretty old-fashioned parquet flooring... Decidedly, this shop has everything to please. A luxurious impression... at a ridiculously low price: Ralph Lauren jackets are available for 20 euros! A haven for fashion designers, but not only: the entire basement is dedicated to men and children.โ€

TILT VINTAGE โญ† Visited by the editor

๐Ÿ’™ You can buy clothes online, or store in Citadium ๐Ÿ’™ Vintage... but trendy ๐Ÿ’™ Many articles from the 80s ๐Ÿ’” Prices a little expensive

The editorial opinion: โ€œTilt Vintage is like Mad Vintage's little brother. We visited the Tilt Vintage store in the Marais, near Saint-Paul. Located in one of the most touristic districts of Paris, which carries a large number of tourists in the shop, this Vintage Tilt store remains nevertheless the historical heart of the chain. One of the managers (Astro) recommended us the Tilt Vintage store from the rue Saint Placide, which is bigger and where we can find an incredible number of vintage dresses. The Tilt located in Rue de Rivoli is not very spacious but well arranged, and all the clothes are hand-picked, in addition to being incredibly well organized. We only regret the slightly high prices. Even if the collections of sunglasses, bucket hats or Kanken bags are in the trend, unfortunately, these are not very original, and many are made up of new items. You can feel that the shop in the Marais is more for tourists than for real rags lovers."

Our heart stroke: Astro's bag out, the K-ways of the 80s and the shelves with very pretty sunglasses (even if they are new, yes, shhh).
