France Paris Shopping Market

13 July 2010

Paris shopping - nothing special!

Shopping in Paris is not all its cracked up to be.
I cant find anything French, and a lot of stores seem closed all week or possibly all summer, I cant quite decide based on the notes on the door.
Extensive research tells me which big department stores to go to, and I have, but theres nothing interesting in them, unless you want something from the Gap or Nike.
Now I dont know what to do, tomorrow is Bastille day, I have bought nothing at all and presumably everything will be shut! Then tomorrow night I go back to London. I hope people expecting gifts enjoy what I can find for them in the train station.... EVERYONE PANIC!!

In the morning I walked to the latin quarter, this market is nearby one of the stations, it was mostly selling fake watches, fake handbags and rotten looking fruit. Although the tins you can see all contain fois gras.
