12 Things I can Find at my Local Parisian Bazaar


26th Apr, 2013

I love my local Bazaar. It has everything, it’s all so mind-blowingly cheap and I could spend hours in there discovering all the random oddities stacked on their shelves. So today I thought I’d take you on a little tour inside with me and perhaps you might understand why it’s one of my favorite shops to browse in Paris…(seriously)!

Let’s see what we can find…

1. A Pomeranian Wall Clock

2. A Crêpe Maker

3. Bejeweled Champagne Glasses


4. Recorders

5. A Hologram picture of Jesus (includes an optional faux gold frame)


6. A Bootleg version of the Operation game


7. A Miniature canvas complete with artist’s stand


8. A Selection of Fake Bananas


9. A Miniature Zen Garden

10. Funky Fluorescent Lights


11. An array of Hologram Placemats


12. Cat Mugs

This place would be heaven for hipsters in search of a little irony…

In case you’re interested in visiting my little local bazaar, it’s located next at 57 Rue Bagnolet in the 20th arrondissement (next to the Père Lachaise cemetary).
