Best shopping in Paris ?

Anyone has any favourite places in Paris for
shopping? Or how about just popular places you've heard of ?

Thanks !!

The basement of BHV has an incredibly complete line of rollers -- for funiture, under the car creepers, whatever -- in every imaginable size and color.

And if you don't go crazy on the size you can fit a lot of them into your suitcase.

Don't tell anybody. Word gets out, the tourist hordes will descend to the basement and my roller shopping will be ruined.

Dave,

Then you'll have to move on to BHV's amazing selection of "tournevols de robinetterie", although I prefer Castorama for those. Casto even stocks the incredibly rare 8mm size!

f1reddie: Might I suggest that you read Suzy Gershman's "Born to Shop: Paris" book -- a fun, organized and thorough read. Updated annually. The author lives in Paris and gives a lot of good advice on all the neighborhoods.

Enjoy!

The "popular" dept stores are Galleries Lafayette, Bon Marche, Le Printemps and La Samarataine. There's a long thread here on shopping for handbags if you do a search. Rue de Grenelle has lots of shoe stores. You'll also find lots of other ideas if you search shopping AND paris here.
