    Arcades de Champs Elysées: Great shops inside the Arcades Champs Elysees

    by Gypsystravels Updated Jan 24, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are a few trendy shops along the Champs Elysees that sell men's and women's clothing. The stores are always packed and you can definitely find some really nice pieces of clothing.

    I enjoy shopping here and picking something different and unique for either myself or my daughter.

    What to buy: Trendy tops, blouses, t-shirts, sweaters, belts.

    What to pay: Very cheap considering you are shopping on the Champs Elysees

    Paris Cy & Cyber Cube: Internet Access in Paris

    by shrimp56 Updated Jan 19, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Internet access for the visitor in Paris isn't always easy to find. The Cyber Cube in the Eiffel Tower area is no more , nor is the Access Academie in the 6th [from what I have been told].
    The two I used this last trip are The Cyber Cube at 5 rue Mignon [Tél : +33 1 53 10 30 ], just off St. Germain near the Odeon metro station and Paris Cy at 8 rue de Jouy [Tél.] in the Marais very near the new Shoah Memorial/Documentation Center. Both were were pleasant. The Cyber Cube tends to fill up as the day goes on.

    What to pay: The rates were variable based on the time of day, but you could usually get a half hour for about 2 euro.

    Various Shops: A Walk Down Av Hoche

    by riorich55 Written Aug 14, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After having a 4 hour lunch with a group of VTers, a short car tour by VTer Gwened and the flame ceremony at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday we ventured off on one of the wheel spoke streets from the Arc de Triomphe (Av. Hoche) with nothing more in mind then to see part of Paris that we hadn't been to yet.

    As we walked we took a variety of pictures and saw a number of very chic looking people.

    Although we didn't stop in any stores, and it looked like most were closed by the time we were walking by we did enjoy this little jaunt a little to the north of the very famous Av. des Champs Elysees.

    Internet: Hole-in-the-wall phone shops

    by Nemorino Updated Jul 27, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now that a lot of the large internet cafés have closed down, your best bet for getting internet access (if you don’t carry a WiFi device of your own) is to look for one of the many hole-in-the-wall phone shops that you will find all over Paris, particularly in the poorer neighborhoods.

    The one in the first photo is a Lycamobile shop at 17, avenue Jean Jaurès in the 19th arrondissement. This particular shop has four computers with internet access, three phone booths and a soft drink machine. But they make their money primarily by selling mobile phones, accessories and services. They also sell SIM-cards, though they sometimes give the SIM-cards away to get people started using their phone connections.

    I used the computers here several times while I was staying at the Hotel Abricotel, which is just around the corner. The cost for internet access at this shop was very reasonable, much less than you would have to pay at one of the few remaining large-scale internet cafés.

    Second photo: Here is a PubliPhone shop on the same street, in fact on the same block just a few doors down. As you can see from the flags in the window, they mainly provide international telephone connections and mobile phones, but they also have a few computers for internet access.

    Shopping at designer stores

    by GentleSpirit Written Jul 15, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Paris is loaded with designer stores. You know the prices will be sky high for even the simplest thing, but go in anyway and have a look around. And don't let your eyes pop out of their sockets when you take a look at the price of things. I remember seeing a small women's wallet, barely able to hold a few credit cards, the price was easily a months mortgage for some people

    several: shopping for restaurant deals

    by gwened Written Apr 11, 2012

    well hoping not to be late, there are several schemes here to get discounts on restos, the restopolitan is one of them; never use them.
    instead I am on the email list of
    they send you specials all the time for discounts on the best restaurants and many times 2x1 too. You choose the resto you want the date you want on the specified time period for the special. So you have a rotating taste every week

    Its good for all of France, and in French of course, but I think easy to use for the gastronomically inclined ::)

    Bon appêtit

    What to buy: meals on many restaurants all over France

    What to pay: best deals around see the site for updates

    Sacre Bleu! Is nothing sacred???

    by CatherineReichardt Updated Oct 14, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Apparently one of a series of "Magnetic Personalities", I fell hook, line and sinker for the charms of fridge-magnet-come-finger puppet in the form of Auguste Rodin in the gift shop of the Musee Rodin. And who wouldn't have succumbed??? Let's face it, haven't we all faced kitchen crises when all we wanted was a finger puppet to empathise with our plight???

    This season's 'must have' accessory for the Art Snob Who Has It All had ForestQueenNYC and Sharonrites in stitches at a recent impromptu VT meet in Paris. Maybe this had something to do with the fact that I was so taken with it that I also bought one for my sister, and the two of them emerged from the packet with their magnets stuck together like Siamese Rodins!

    Doesn't this just make you want to go and collect the rest in the series???

    Césaire Paris: Amazing collection of French handbags

    by Joannagiorca Written May 28, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Could you imagine finding in Paris, a shop that offers authentic french handbags creations ?
    Structured like architectural masterpieces, cut like couture creations, Stéphanie Césaire’s bags are completed in splendid
    leathers by talented artisans in the best traditions of French luxury.
    Stéphanie Césaire’s boutique line of custom designs, Césaire, comes as a welcome relief to those of us looking for the timeless elegance of a luxury bag. I was first struck by the line’s diversity .I was pleasantly surprised to find that the purses in this store would not only have matched the diverse personalities of the women in my life, they would have truly complimented each of their personal styles and unique approaches to elegance.
    Her specialty: versatile and elegant arm candy that leaves you feeling ahead of the curve without falling into trendy cliché – the anti-‘It-Bag’ if you will.
    The designer puts forward her bags, alluring like dresses, in her cozy boutique full of design and character.

    What to buy: It was difficult for me to select a favorite among her fabulous bags, but, design-wise the "Grand sellier " was my choise, and for me it is the most sophisticated handbag of the brand.

    What to pay: While most of the bags retail for over $1000, but price hovever is insignifiant if you bring home these uniques creations
