There is no question that Paris is one of the best shopping cities in the world. In every arrondissement, you will find fashion at its finest. Galeries Lafayette Haussman is one of my favorite large department stores and walking the Rue Saint-Honoré or Avenue Motaigne is trés chic. But if you are really looking for unique fabulous French items (think Chanel, Hermes, Dior...) Check out these two high end vintage shop.

In this tiny boutique located on the left bank, you will find the best vintage Chanel jewelry, Hermes, Vuition, Dior, Prada, Louboutin to name a few. My friends and I spent hours in this store and went back twice. Vivian, an elegant Parisan woman, was beyond patient with us as we tried on countless vintage Chanel necklaces and bracelets. She had amazing jewelry from runway shows as well as a smaller selection of clothing and bags. Located in the chic 7th arrondissement of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, this is a shopping experience not to be missed!
