Free P star is the type of place where you can easily get lost in all the bins and piles and racks, but with some time can easily turn up gems. They have a 1 euro bin in every store, also usually a 5 euro bin with very nice stuff in it for the taking. The store does smell a bit and has inappropriate pictures on the walls....but if you can deal with that then an occasional look in their cheap bins will suit you. They are also open 7 days a week with longer hours then any other thrift store in Paris, as well as taking credit card (mine is American) so those are 2 big pluses. Staff also is more apt to leaving you alone to wander around then harass you which is also nice.
One and five euro bins here!!
Went here on my first visit to Paris. I'd give it a 3.5 but decided on a 3 for a few reasons.
I don't know if it's because of the day I went but I had the unfortunate event of going in at the same time as a bunch of English girls on vacation, looking to find some cool French duds to bring back home. Let's say due to the tight space, there was a lot of shoulder to shoulder, foot to foot, elbow to elbow. Not to mention I could hear every conversation that was had between them.
I would say the selection is definitely on a grandma chic level. There are a variety of things to look at and some bins of further discounted things that may or may not interest people. I found a cool dirndl skirt in a sunflower print I really liked, but in the end, I decided against it. It's definitely a place with things you may like but reason yourself out of getting.
I think it's worth taking a look. Though small, it's packed with a lot of stuff so you never know what you'll find.
Vast leather and fur collection, but it's difficult to wade through the racks because everything is crammed so tight. There are even some clothing pieces strewn on the floor that the staff didn't bother to pick up. The downstairs area is better - although you have to wind down a tight and precarious stairway.
The prices are pretty good (I got a GAP denim jacket for 10 euros!). If you've got a lot of time and patience, this is the place to go.
Cannot understand why this isn't 5 stars! If this place was in Brighton, the hipsters and locals would be going WILD.
Very cool little vintage store, with a REALLY good leather collection!! For men and women. The pricing is decent. Bargains. What you're supposed to be going into second hand stores for. Except that people in the south of England have seemed to forgotten this reason and are perfectly happy to be paying over the odds BECAUSE it's second-hand and that's... Cool? Whatev's jokers.
This shop got it going Ooonnnnn. I bagged myself a lovely suede jacket for next to nothing and I can tell its going to last me a long time. Aaaahhh yeaahh.
Walked into here while wandering around the Marais on a Sunday. First thing that pleased me was Motörhead was playing full blast and second thing was the very cheaply priced used clothing and the young hip Parisians searching for the next cool ensemble to put together.
I found a vintage 60's era A-line dress for €10 and couldn't have been happier.
The clothes are packed tightly together and the shop is small but it's worth taking a look !
Quality thrift clothing and at an inexpensive price in the heart of Paris. All of their 3 locations are ridiculously cool, and vibrant with a wide range of selection, and there are even 1 euro bins of clothes! Such great value, enjoy!
Good selection of clothes. Multi level.Very well organized, good walking space and the prices are great! Mostly everything was 5 or 10 Euros.You can definitely find some diamonds in the rough. We found some prices to be negotiable. He rounded out our purchase and charged us less.
What keeps it from 5 stars:
We felt slightly rushed although we had a few minutes before they closed. Definitely would have spend more money if we had the time.
c'est très petit. c'est difficile pour aller en bas. il y a trop de monde dedans. c'est pas organizé.
mais, les vêtements sont unique, le prix est bon, et les vendeurs sont sympa.
If you love vintage, come take an afternoon stroll in the Marais, where this shop is located. It's cramped, but if you have time to go through everything, you may find a good quality item. I bought a polka dot summer cotton dress for 10 euros. If you are here, walk another minute to Rue de Rosiers to find another similar vintage shop called "Vintage Desir", just past the falafel joints.
A small but packed place full of cheap vinatge parisian clothes incl fancy dress. Has that much stuff you could rummage all day but so many people with the same idea it can get really stuffy and can get unbearable. There is also a downstairs -go down the spiral staircase at the back of the shop -be careful you don't break your neck!!
