Time Out says

You wouldn’t guess it from the outside – through the front window, you can’t see much other than neon lights and a few hung clothes – but this vintage boutique has enough in store to keep you coming back for more. The first room, which doubles up as an artisanal workshop, sets the tone: trinkets crowd the shelves, while second-hand bikes and garments of obscure origin fill the floor space. Bargain-hunters will be kept busy – we found an old wicker-framed mirror for €10, and a formica chair for €12.

Carry on thence into the salon, decked out in the kind of retro furniture that you’d find in a street market for twice the price. Your hunt for a rickety old kitchen trolley is over: here they’re on sale for a mere €25. The usual vintage suspects – armchairs, sofas, vinyls – complete the picture, and provide a suitably snug venue for the various gigs, theatrical performances and massage workshops that occasionally take place here (to find out more, sign up to the shop’s mailing list by entering your writing address on the typewriter by the door). A welcome addition to the colourful establishments that line the rue Sainte-Marthe.
