Read from the Book

Paris is a city still alive with small shops. Despite encroaching global brands, specialist retailers are everywhere: on grand boulevards, in elegant covered passages and hidden in back streets.This guide features many of the most creative of these establishments; some date back hundreds of years, others are newly founded, with the vigour and enthusiasm of youth. Among the 40 entries are places to buy essentials, luxuries and curiosities. There's stationery and art supplies, fabric and notions, scented candles and soap, umbrellas, toys, rat traps, taxidermy. A selection as fragrant, appealing and occasionally eccentric as the small shops themselves.
