Paris Thrift Stores – 6 Places To Shop On A Tight Budget 2024

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.

Amazing shopping experience!

My daughter and I just got back from an fabulous shopping tour with Linda. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Linda communicated with me via email and WhatsApp and she asked lots of questions about both me and my daughter’s style and our shopping needs and wants. She went above and beyond to help make the experience amazing. She took us to stores where she had hand picked items for both of us. Shopping in Paris can be overwhelming especially with a picky teen, but Linda really delivered. She also gave us great shopping recommendations for the rest of our day. Highly recommend her services!!!!

Our afternoon with Linda was absolutely fantastic, and one we’ll never forget! We all (daughters 11, 14, and myself) found special items we are so excited about, and never would’ve found the fantastic clothes or brands she pointed out to us if it weren’t for her. She gave us advice on what worked and what didn’t, helped bridge the language barrier, and made 3 hours fly by. I would (hopefully will!) do it again in a heartbeat!!

Linda hosted a Fashionista Experience for me, my 13YO and our 22YO friend. She has the best personality and style ideas. Her kindness and professionalism with my family and with store personnel was so very impressive as was her rapport with the saleswomen in the stores. Of our 10 days in Paris, this was one of our favorite outings and so different than anything else we did. No pressure to buy and such an in-depth knowledge of the area. When we ran out of time, she walked us by all the other places she didn't want us to miss. What a gem. Book her while you can.

A fabulous shopping spree!

My favorite part was our guide, Linda! she was so kind and professional. She worked so well with both my granddaughters. They thought she was terrific. She understood their existing styles and preferences but then added tips and encouragement to update their current looks. Going shopping with Linda was my granddaughter's favorite part of the trip!
