Designer seconds shopping in Paris

Where to find some of the best Designer Seconds Stores in Paris is one of the frequent questions we get asked by our B&B guests! Not surprising of course...words synonymous with 'Paris' are: fashion, style, designer and ... Shopping!! Though not all of us can afford the brand spanking new stuff, fresh off the floor of some glistening LV, Chanel or Fendi! Besides...rummaging through treasures in a quaint seconds boutique is so much more fun and frenchy chic!
