Second Hand Tips (16)

CROCO DISC: The best secondhand record shop in town

After an afternoon of record hunting CROCO DISC turned out to be our last stop.

What a pleasant surprise to be welcomed in this loaded shop.

It may look like a worn dusty shop, but the knowlegeable tenants are very happy to dig the rarest records from somewhere in the building.

I already had a good hunt that day, but the records I got here just were awesome!

BTW There are 2 shops and I was most pleased with the left one (Rock and Pop).

Business hours:
Tu - Sa: 11AM - 7PM

What to pay Average prices

Business hours: Mo-Sa 11AM - 7PM

Boulinier: Second hand books, CD's, DVD's and vinyl

Boulinier is probably the most popular second hand books and music shop.

I spend some time on the first floor, where cases loaded with 45 RPM vinyl were waiting for just 50 Euro cents.

What to buy Vinyl.

What to pay from 50 cents per item.

Tea and Tattered Pages: Great Used Book Store

Have you ever discovered a used bookstore, browsed the shelves and said to yourself "OMG, I can't believe they have this!!!!"?

Well, that's what spending an afternoon at Tea and Tattered Pages is like. If Shakespeare and Co. is just too darn crowded with backpackers for you, come here for your English language fix. It's been around for 20 years and somehow I never made it here until recently. The shelves are stocked with great books, the manager is friendly, and they even serve tea. The prices are more than reasonable and I really couldn't believe what interesting books they carried. It seems to me this is a one-off kind of place, so if you see something you like, buy it as it may not be there tomorrow.

What to buy English language books on every possible subject in every possible genre.

What to pay Very reasonable!

Delaveine: Discount Designer wear! Delaveine

A nice little shop with 4 floors of trendy modern designer wear discount clothes. For both men and women this place has it all.

What to buy The pull overs, coats and T shirts are original in design and good quality. The designs may not appeal to all and I have noticed that in seasons they are either really good or really aweful. Pre Xmas they were good and in the Spring when I went they were terrible.

What to pay about 6 euro for a pull over and about 40 euro for a coat.

Eiffel Depot Vente: Another Designer Used Clothing Store

This vintage store is in the 15th about 3 blocks from the Eiffel Tower. I stopped in and found that the owner was extremely nice and spoke English. She had a wonderful selection of designer clothes, shoes, and accessories. Some of the labels were Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent, Hermes, and Gucci. I saw a pair of never worn Gucci shoes that I hadn't seen around since 1980 or so.

San Francisco Book co.: Used books in English

A tiny shop in central Paris, but also a cave of wonders.
It's smaller than Shakespear & co., but it only makes it easier to find a good book to read on a sunny café terrace or in the Luxembourg.

The owners are nice and always happy to help you choose. If they don't have the book you're looking for, they'll give you directions to all the English bookstores in Paris.

What to buy ummm.. books.

What to pay An average of 5€ for a paperback.
