Here your ultimate guide to vintage shops Paris
Paris, the fashion capital of the world, is sure to have wonderful second hand shops that will bring you firsthand joy.
Le Marais is one of the coolest neighborhoods in Paris. In addition to finding the best places to eat, you’ll see a large variety of vintage shops here.
Whether you’re on a tight budget or looking for something unique (or both!) you will not be disappointed.
The vintage shops here are amazing, there’s so much to find. So…. wear comfortable shoes, bring a large shopping bag and enjoy shopping!
Here are some of my favorite vintage shops:
Mamzelle Swing is found in the very center of Le Marais, and has been opening its rose pink doors to customers since 1995 and transporting them back through the years of fashion in the most stylish way.
‘Mamz’elle Swing’ is run by Bérénice (founder and owner), and specializes in Vintage items from the 1920s through to the 1960s. Each item within her boutique is hand-picked, from either France or Belgium.
It is immediately obvious, the moment you step through the entrance and are greeted by vintage music and a warm smile, that ‘Mamz’elle Swing’ is more than a rummaging style thrift shop.
Every piece is of the best quality, and carefully selected, with their own story and memories that they hold inside, ready to start their next chapter with their new owner.
Bérénice’s passion for Vintage fashion shines through immediately, from her impeccably chosen outfit, to the retro-hair styles, and depth of knowledge, tips, advice. Not only does she have passion for Vintage fashion, but it is more than that, it is a life-style, and it is that which she sells with each item that leaves that rose pink door.

Odetta Vintage (or Odette)
Odetta’s is perfect for fashionistas who want a mix of the best vintage finds and new buys under one roof.
With past-collection pieces from the likes of YSL, Lanvin, Balenciaga, Chanel, Chloé and more,
rubbing shoulders with the shop’s simple ‘n stylish own-label shoes and bags, you can walk out with something old and something new and still look the business. A clean, minimal approach to the shop’s design, as well as the occasional stunning piece of antique furniture (all up for sale) makes the space it feels as cool as the stock.
76, rue des Tournelles, 75003 Paris
25 Janvier is like your most stylish girlfriend’s closet, filled with bags, shoes and accessories by classic designers like Dior and Chanel. Owner Yukiko also has her own line of new clothing. If you walk out dressed head-to-toe in 25 janvier’s wares you’ll turn heads for your on-trend threads rather than for wearing anything obviously “from the past.”
Beautiful basics are the thing here, with that added, secret thrill of owning a bit of fashion history. Currently the site shows a nice collection of vintage Chanel and Gucci accessories.
