    Going shopping on the rue des Francs-Bourgeois

    Linking the Place des Vosges to the gardens of the National Archives, a shopping outing on the rue des Francs-Bourgeois can take on a cultural dimension that is sure to charm you. All the brands which set the tone for women’s fashion line the rue des Francs-Bourgeois like notes on a sheet of music, including Maje, Zapa, Claudie Pierlot, Sud Express, Sessun, Comptoir des Cotonniers, Sandro, Gérard Darel, and ba&sh. Even women’s lingerie appears in the windows of Princesse tam tam or Aubade.

    If you want to follow in the footsteps of the designers featured on the rue des Francs-Bourgeois, concoct your own unique fragrance at the Studio des Parfums and showcase your creativity with the studio’s guidance and savoir-faire.

    Rendezvous at the BHV Marais on the rue de Rivoli

    Gardening, Home, Fashion, Beauty, DIY, Leisure: a thousand worlds meet under one roof in Paris, making this lifestyle retailer on rue de Rivoli worth a detour.

    Pop up shops on rue de Turenne

    Seven temporary boutiques line the rue de Turenne. Follow along this main road and get lost in the adjacent streets, where you can find even more Pop-Up Shops offering the visitor an ever-changing attraction.

    The fleeting pleasures, delicious chocolates, sweets, and pastries at Jacques Genin will surely make you give in to temptation at 113 rue de Turenne.

    The concept stores on rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie

    Whether you’re looking for design, decoration, lifestyle, or fashion, you will find two concept stores on rue Sainte-Croix de la Bretonnerie which may have just what you’re looking for. Open the door to Factorys or Fleux to enter a chic and trendy universe.

    Rue Malher

    Some people come to the Marais just to visit Friperie Culotte, which sells vintage items and second-hand clothing, but especially jewelry at attractive prices. The L’Eclaireur boutique is also located on rue Malher, selling men’s and women’s designer clothing from a variety of brands.

    Rue Vieille du Temple

    On this street, the Xippas contemporary art gallery rubs shoulders with the Atelier Clot lithography workshop, while jewelry shops neighbor the independent designer boutiques.

    You will find embroidered shirts in the boutique of Maison Labiche, a Saint James sweater at 116 rue Vielle du Temple, or an outfit from Maje at the boutique located at the intersection with rue des Blancs Manteaux. For those who like making delicious gourmet discoveries, we recommend a visit to 60 rue Vielle du Temple to discover the fine foods at La Chambre aux Confitures.

    Another little gem is hidden on this street, the boutique of Edwart Chocolatier, which challenges the conventions of traditional artisanal chocolate-making to offer an exceptional gastronomical journey.

    The unmissable rue des Rosiers

    Enjoy a falafel, the vegetarian sandwich made from fried chickpea purée, as you walk up the rue des Rosiers. Located between the rue Mahler and rue Vieille-du-Temple, this cobblestone street is no longer lined with flowers but with boutiques, food shops, bookstores, and restaurants typical of Jewish culture, making it an iconic location.

    Souvenirs from the rue de Sévigné

    Two shops in particular merit a detour to the rue de Sévigné. First of all, a chic and quirky boutique named Just Art! Paris, where you will experience a moment of delight as you move through an astonishing universe of colors and original shapes. The shop’s creator makes artistic jewelry in this atelier that is sure to charm you unless you prefer to create your own jewelry!

    The honeybee was the symbol of Napoléon, to whom Paris owes so much, so it is not surprising that the bee occupies its rightful place in this environment. Under a more modern form, you will discover rare and sought-after types of honey by entering Miel factory at 28 rue de Sévigné. This shop also offers organic propolis and royal jelly, as well as a range of natural well-being products and fine foods.
