The principle of Afwosh (After Work Shop) is simple: offer pretty trinkets to suit all budgets – from monstre à doigt rings (€2.50) to leather carry bags (€228) and Pac-man shaped speakers (€28.50 each). Launched four years ago by Chloe and Emilie, this shop in the Rue d'Hauteville has earned itself a fine reputation. There are big names here, including the giant of French luggage Nat & Nin, and ready-to-wear fashion (Surface to Air, See you soon), but one can also unearth objects by talented up-and-coming designers including Ccil, Lina Poum and Macon & Lesquoy. Particularly lovely is the selection of vintage T-shirts by Junkfood, the Sardina Lomography cameras and the end-of-line department at the back of the shop which will net you a discount of around 40% on featured stock. A bargain here is almost guaranteed.
