I spent much time during my recent trip to Paris hunting for the best boutiques and shopping areas. Fortunately I had the help of CJ Paris Shopping Tours to point me in the right direction.

 There are many more shopping areas but these are a few of my favorites. Here are my top Paris shopping destinations:


Top Paris Shopping Destinations





Le Marais

– to discover that unique Parisian find


My favorite spot and a great place for local Fashionistas; Le Marais offered trendy boutiques with only the best in chic Parisian style.

This area was the focus of my shopping tour with Angela from CJ and she showed me all the best local brands. I allowed myself one French indulgence from Comptoir des Cotonniers – a beautiful gunmetal grey dress I’ll be wearing to a couple of weddings this summer in England.


Champs Elysées

– for access to global brands in one destination


Great for French and international retail favorites like Maje (France), Zara (Spain), and H&M (Sweden) and home to popular accommodation options like Accor Group Paris hotels; the Champs Elysées area is buzzing with activity.

You can visit the must see Arc de Triomphe and shop in the same afternoon all while being a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower.


Galleries Lafayette

– for the ultimate in luxury


I attended the Delsey Luggage cocktail party here in their temporary pop up store and got a glimpse at the glitz and glamour of Parisian luxury.

It was a haven of designer brands showcased in an immaculate manner in the store’s easy to follow layout. I was absolutely mesmerized by the individual “stores” within the bottom floor: Ives St Laurent, Marc Jacobs, and every other major name imaginable. Each brand had a glistening showroom making every handbag lustworthy and covetable.


Stock Shops

– for the fashionista bargain hunter


Stock shops are outlets and discount retailers featuring top designer brands. While they won’t be bargain basement cheap, you can find designer apparel at a fraction of the regular price.

You can find stock stores on the outskirts of Paris with many clustered in the 10th Arrondissement.


Flea Markets

– for that one of a kind vintage frock


For vintage fanatics, there are plenty of flea markets to keep you entertained for days on end. If rummaging is your thing, save a day or two for a full day of exploration. It’s easy to get lost in time as you hunt down that one of a kind Parisian find.





These are a few of the flea market favorites: Marché St Ouen/Porte de Clingancourt, Marché aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves, and Marché aux Puces de Montreuil.
