Some suggestions to combine business with pleasure.
A large city like Paris has the advantage of
offering boutiques to suit all budgets
, from thrift shops to international brands. During the sales, the less well-off will appreciate going to shops like the now-famous Kilo Shop, on the rue de la
Verrerie and Boulevard Saint-Germain
, where you can pay for second-hand purchases by weight to reduce clothes waste.
Rue du Faubourd-du-Temple has a long series of small inexpensive ready-to-wear stores, among which you can search for hidden gems. Those with slightly more flexible budgets could visit the Italie Deux shopping centre, more breathable and less crowded than others during the sales with a large number of branded stores, such as Agatha, Sephora, Levi's or Zara.
