  • Paris Flea Markets and Shopping Tips

    By Marjorie R. Williams

    Exploring flea markets is a popular weekend activity in Paris for locals and travelers alike. The items that turn up cover the spectrum. And so flea marketing is one of those “equal opportunity” activities--likely to appeal to people of all ages (yes, even--or especially--when in Paris with teenagers), sexes, backgrounds, and hobbies. The Paris flea markets are open year round, but the inventory expands during spring and summer.

  • Shopping in Paris: What Just a Few Euros Can Get You

    By Naomi Mikhaiel

    I have just moved into my new apartment in Paris. The first morning I decide to stay in, purely to enjoy the tranquillity and comfort of the new space. The apartment is filled with light and is just about as quiet as a library. I gaze here and there, taking in the neatness of the bookshelves, a Canaletto print,  and a dried posy of thyme. My gaze falls onto an enormous old copy of Baudelaire’s ‘Les Fleurs du Mal’ and then wanders to a beautiful teapot and a potted jasmine wound delicately around the balcony.

Some people have taken to giving tokens of affection, so here are some French-inspired gifts that you might want to share with your loved ones.

  • Marché Aligre

    By Angelica Buerkin-Salgado

    Having lived in Paris for over two years now, I must admit that I discovered the Faubourg Saint-Antoine neighborhood of the 11th and 12th arrondissements surprisingly late. A traditionally plebian neighborhood, Faubourg Saint-Antoine houses an impressive collection of hip bars, charming bistros, as well as an extensive network of covered passages.
