Antique stores

You're in for a Treat

Paris is one the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. It exudes history. How about discovering a little piece of history of your own? Rummaging through one of Paris’ antique stores or markets is a colourful thrill. Start your antique adventure at the Village Saint Paul (Rue Saint-Paul, 75004). In between shops and ateliers, there are many little antique stalls tucked away. Go on the weekend when everything is open. La Tortue Electrique (5 rue Frédéric Sauton 75005) showcases vintage trinkets and toys, while Et Puis C'est Tout (16 rue des Martyrs 75009) is the place to go for reasonably priced antique kitchenware. Au Fil du Coeur (12 rue Sarrette 75014) mixes antique porcelain and silverware with clothing and jewellery. Finally, accompany your Globego host to Drouot (9, rue Drouot, 9th). Here you’ll enter one of the oldest auction houses in the world, the Hôtels des Ventes. The house opened its doors in 1852, and this is perhaps the penultimate experience for the avid auction hunter.
