Shop Paris like a Local: Unique French Handcrafted Products

Are you looking to buy some unique gifts for your family, friends & loved ones?  Let me show you some of the best insider addresses for a unique shopping experience in Paris.  You won't come away empty-handed! This is your chance to experience Paris shopping at its best - the locations known only to Parisians - and the opportunity to experience what makes Paris so unique.

We start in a chocolate shop where East meets West with fusion style treats. Next stop, a porcelain shop with unusual gift ideas. Next we'll visit an antique tea shop (dating from 1692). Two perfumeries are included - one a unique shop offering vintage fragrances not found anywhere else - another shop sells lovely scents designed by France's first female "nose". We then visit a shop that sells hand-crafted handbags made in France - very affordably priced.

For the men there are several boutiques included - hand-crafted leather belts, made to order men's shoes, affordable watches & unique artisanal knives.

  • This is a unique shopping experience located in the trendy Marais shopping district. You will visit small, offbeat boutiques which offer handmade, artisanal products that you won't find elsewhere. For example, an antique shop (dating from 1692) offering over 200 varieties of designer teas. Or a French "nose", a perfume specialist, who sells vintage fragrances from the 1930s & 40s (including one designed for Princess Grace of Monaco).
    You will taste fusion chocolates in a Japanese sweet shop and sample honies from around the world. Men will enjoy the workshop of an Italian leather craftsman who custom designs belts right in the store, or a boutique selling hand-crafted men's shoes, or an artisan who customizes pen-knives with unique tattoo-like engravings. You will try on designer handbags, made in France, whose very reasonable prices start at 90€ (yes, you read that right)!
    Along the way, we will experience the charms of this lovely neighbourhood, with its baroque mansions & vestpocket parks.
