Paris Shopping Guide:  From Hermès Luxury Bags to Flea Market Bargains

Fashionistas love shopping in Paris - and not just because of the luxury haute couture showrooms along "the Golden Triangle" and in grand department stores such as Galeries Lafayette where you can snap up the latest creations from Dior, Hermès, Louboutin, and other famous famous designers.

Paris practically bursts with wonderful places to shop where you can find top Parisian, French, and international fashions as well as decor, antiques, and home goods at prices ranging from high-end to affordable to downright cheap. 

You can easily spend days exploring the small boutiques in trendy neighborhoods such as the Marais and Canal Martin, weekly pop-up street markets and lively pedestrian-only market streets, almost-hidden antique villages, historic glass-roofed arcades, treasure-filled cookware stores near the old (and now new again) Les Halles market area, glistening new shopping malls, bargain-filled (and high-end) flea markets, and even a discount designer mall just a short train or bus ride from the city.  


If you're in Paris from mid-November through the end of December, stop by the festive Christmas Markets that spring up around the city.  In January-February and June-July, don't miss the famous winter and summer sales.

Where to begin?  Use our Paris Shopping Guide to decide where to start your adventures - and then go wherever your passion leads you!
