One thing I wanted to do while we were in Paris was go vintage shopping. Even though Paris has quite possibly the best shopping in the world, we rarely shop while we’re there. There are just too many other things to do or places to see. But, this time around, I had done a little research and talked to a few pros about where to score the best vintage pieces while in Paris.

We spent our last fews days staying at Le Royal Monceau in the 8th Arr, right near the Arc de Triomphe and a short walk to Avenue Montaigne. Right off of Avenue Montaigne is a tiny little vintage store called Scarlett (3 Rue Chambiges, 75008 Paris, France) that is filled with luxury treasures with a specialty in Chanel. You can find racks of vintage Chanel jackets and blazers, a rainbow wall of bags and small shelves with delicate jewels just waiting for new homes.

Even though I had told Thomas that we were “just browsing, you know, vintage shopping!”, I was actually on a secret mission to find a vintage pearl Chanel necklace. Now, I knew the chances of finding what I actually wanted were slim to none, so my expectations were not set very high. But when I asked an employee at Scarlett if they had any and she turned around and brought this one to me, I was floored. It was exactly what I had been dreaming up in my head! Sold!

We made a quick stop in the afternoon to meet up with a friend for lunch at Cafe Pinson, a healthy little spot that has yummy, organic (mostly vegetarian) food. After eating one too many decadent meals during our time in France, all we really wanted was healthy food by the end of our trip. Luckily, Paris has quite a few cafés with “California cuisine”. Another great spot we tried out was Ob-La-Di.

I’m curious to know, have you visited any vintage shops while in Paris? Or abroad? Any hidden treasures out there? Every time I’ve purchased a vintage piece, it’s as if a story comes along with it. Not just the story of how old it is or where it came from, but the story of finding it and how it ended up in my hands.
