Paris shopping tips

Paris is busy promoting itself during the sale period, in hopes to attract visitors with less-than-ideal exchange rates. One of the new initiatives is the Soldes by Paris event, which aims to help visitors shop in different parts of the city. Below I have translated some of the special shopping events that they are offering. But of course, if you would like a more personal option, check out my site, Chic Shopping Paris, for a wide range of shopping tours.

happy bargain hunting!

From Soldes by Paris:

Chic Sales in the 2nd: January 18th and 19th, in the historic passage Vivienne, superbly lit for the holidays, shop owners propose a high quality tag sale (along with mulled wine and special presents)

Gastronomy in the 5th (rue Mouffetard): From January 9-13th, a special gourmet market will offer visitors a chance to find foie gras, wine, and regional products. Neighborhood restaurants and brasseries will serve typical French regional dishes.

Unusual finds in the 10th [Canal Saint Martin]: Ethnic goods, ethical goods, and organic....shop owners will be ambassadors of their products.
