Specialty Shops in Paris


We all know that the shopping we have in Paris is some of the best in world. People come from all over just to experience the magic that is Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, or Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, or Rue des Franc Bourgeois. But the real magic lies hidden away in Paris’ various specialty shops. Everything from hats to honey, books to baked goods, here are some of SFP’s favorite specialty shops in Paris.

Not Ready for Summer to End?


Neither are we! Summer in Paris is always full of unique activities, our favorite of which we shared with Wimdu in their feature. From Paris Plages to the péniches, rosé wine, and terrace hopping, the fun never stops! So if you’re like us and you’re not quite ready for la rentrée, here are SFP’s suggestions on how you can prolong your summer in Paris.

Food Trucks and Music

This one has been on SFP’s Event Calendar all summer and is continuing past la rentrée, the unofficial end to summer in Paris. Head over to the docks next to the Parc Andre Citroën in the 15th arrondissement for La Javelle, a food truck festival with a bar, music, and that tangible Parisian-summer ambiance. The food trucks change everyday and vary from lobster rolls to vegan burgers to thaï, so check out the website for the schedule and pick your poison!
