More Description

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 decor 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.
