The Kilo Shop- Heavy Weight Vintage Champion of Paris

For those of you who have been following the FYP blog recently, will have noticed our focus upon Vintage Shops in Paris, and helping you decifer the vinatge good, bad and the ugly. Too often clothes in vintage shops are truely vintage, thanks to their unwearablilty and lack of any possible desirability, and so have stayed upon their hangers in the shop since the beginning of the century…
However, we have tracked down those goldust like vintage Chanel handbags, and the YSL earrings from the 1920s, you have been coveting in our series of articles. But its the turn of one of the main players of the ‘Vintage Game’, and the biggest Vintage store in Paris- The ‘Kilo Shop’.

With now 6 stores located at various sites throughout Le Marais, and central Paris, the ‘Kilo Shop’ franchaise are taking over the retro revival!

The concept is simple, you pay by weight. Much in the same fashion as you weigh your fruit and veg at the green groceres, you place you items on the scales and you pay depending on its weight.

Stock turn around is quick, and obvioulsy every piece is one of a kind, paired with exceptionally good prices, it has fast become a firm favourite for hipsters and fashionistas alike, and houses everything from blouses, to belts, fur scarves to skirts and vintage shoes, it is most definitely worth a quick stop. Having said ‘quick stop’, good luck, is our advice ! We would be more than a little surprised if you managed to make a round trip in less than half an hour, given that their flapship store (and our personal favourite !) spans over 500m2, on 2 levels, and every rail and shelf is adorned with vintage jewels, that are irresiable to touch and try on.

I love absolutely everything

"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!"

"This was my first personal shopping experience on a trip to Paris so I wasn't sure what to expect, but was soon pul al case by the warm and friendly Linda... 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!"

"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
Read More
"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!"
