Paris Thrift Stores – 6 Places To Shop On A Tight Budget 2023

Must-Shop Clothing Stores In Paris, France

Many beautiful things can be said about Paris – and they’ve indeed been said! – one rather unfortunate aspect is that it’s a pricey place to shop. But the hidden truth is, Paris is a treasure chest of inexpensive yet stylish clothing, with thrift stores found in various small streets and hidden corners. Here is a list of the best Paris thrift stores. These 6 shops are where you will find the most fashionable items, that are available at the lowest prices.

Paris Thrift Stores – 6 Boutiques With Affordable (But Stylish) Clothes

Paris Thrift Store #1 – FREE ‘P’ STAR:

With three stores in the Hotel de Ville and Marais area, this is the best Paris thrift store to go if you’re on a tight budget. The big attraction at Free ‘P’ Star is their bargain bin, where everything found in the bin can be purchased for merely 1 euro. This bin is located in a tight, stuffy room that’s often overcrowded (be prepared to dig deep), but you can find anything here, from blazers to jeans to sweaters to skirts, for just one euro. Now that’s what I call a score! Free “P” Star is definitely one of the best clothing stores in Paris and that is why it is #1 on my list. Dress comfortably and head to the blue room upstairs for some cheap and chic finds!

Paris Thrift Store #2 – THE KILO SHOP

Found also in Hotel de Ville and Saint Germain, this thrift store sells its merchandise by weight- 20 euros a kilo for clothing with green tags, and 30 euros a kilo for clothing with red labels.

You can find women’s clothing, men’s clothing, shoes, hats, bags, accessories, fur coats, and even wigs in their ample and organized space! Scales are located throughout the store so you can weigh your load before paying. This store is perfect for those who’re looking for a less chaotic thrifting experience.

Paris Thrift Store #3 – LITTLE BOX

As the name suggests, this store in the Marais is a tiny jewelry box of vintage designer finds.
Although the prices aren’t as low as they are at the Kilo Shop or Free ‘P’ Star, their stock is well-curated, and you’ll find many beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces in excellent condition.

Pay this boutique (and its helpful owners!) a visit if you’re looking for an intimate shopping experience and an opportunity to score some secondhand couture.

Paris Thrift Store #4 – The Stock Shops:

Another superb yet criminally unknown option for shopping in Paris when on a budget is the stock shops. Now, what even is a stock shop? You can think of a stock shop as a clearance shop that sells last season’s clothes at massive discounts. There is nothing wrong with these branded clothes; they are just one season too late. Considering the fantastic quality and up to 60% discounts makes stock shops a default option for anyone looking to buy unique French brands.

There are many of these around the city, but the ones at APC Surplus: 20 Rue André del Sarte, 75018 Paris, and Sandro Stock: 26 Rue de Sévigné, 75004 Paris are two of the most notable ones.

"Often, when I go out with the intention of buying new clothes, I end up wandering around for hours and not finding anything I really love. Because my time in Paris was limited, I wanted to make the best use of what little opportunity I had for shopping. Enter Linda, who-in just 3 hours-helped me select a range of gorgeous new clothes and accessories, I love absolutely everything I bought. My time with her was an absolute joy: she is very relaxed and easy to chat with, and she really listens to your opinions and steers you towards the things you will like. If only all shopping was this easy!"

I'll definitely be back for more!

After wearing one of my new outfits back in London. several people have commented that I had a 'French chic look going on! It was the look I'd asked Linda for, so it seems to be working! Highly recommended - and I'll definitely be back for more!"
Great shopping experience!

"We had such a productive two hours with Linda! My daughter is very petite for her age (14 years old, almost 5'2" and 90 lbs). It is hard for her to find clothes in styles popular in her age group and I was worried that our Paris shopping would be frustrating. I am so glad we booked Linda! We sent her some samples of styles my daughter liked as well as the types of items we were interested in purchasing. Linda mapped out stores and actual items in advance. And she was good at identifying potential options on the fly too. In two hours we got a dress, two pairs of jeans, some slides and two tops that my daughter loves! In every store Linda would quickly ask the salespeople for the smallest sizes and then my daughter would quickly make a call on what she wanted to try. Very efficient! Linda comes from a family in the fashion business and earlier in the day had helped a bride from the U.S. select her couture wedding gown. She is versatile for sure! Thank you Linda for this great highlight of our trip to Paris!"
Amazing Personal Shopping Experience in Paris

"My 13 year old daughter and I had a wonderful morning with Linda. We walked around the Marais area and Linda introduced us to many shops and boutiques. Linda quickly understood what my daughter style is and what she prefers and offered her different and unique items at every store. My daughter is typically not an easy shopper :) but Linda was able to find her multiple beautiful items that she loved and we purchased (all within the budget we pre-defined before starting). We even got one item for me (although this was not our focus this time ...). Linda also helped us to quickly receive the tax refund forms at the different stores we visited. Overall it was an amazing experience which my daughter really enjoyed and marked as one of the highlights of our Paris visit."

"Linda took my daughter and I and another friend and her daughter shopping and it was just perfect. She chose ideal spots for the teenagers and great spots for myself and my friend (we are in our early 50s). She's kind, patient, and thoughtful and really tries to make sure everyone finds what they need/ I also loved that she wasn't pushy with us buying things. She made me feel very comfortable to say you know this is not right for me. I love the shoes I got on our trip and the jeans and my daughter had the best time. This is a really special experience. My only suggestion would be that if you are shopping for teens and grownups to try to add more time because 2 hours was not enough for us! It's a great experience -- hope you enjoy it too!"
