Cannot help you in Paris but Villedieu les Poeles in lower Normandy is where they are all made. This is a wonderful town with plenty of outlets and a copper factory where they make all the copper pans you'll ever need. If you cannot get to Normandy go to a restaurant supply store, they'll have the copper sauteuse etc.
And the food is better than Paris as well.

Don't laugh but the easiest way to clean your copper pots and pans is with Ketchup, just smear it on , let it sit a bit then wipe off with paper towels before rinsing. Mine pots all gleam and they are used almost daily.

There is a Villedieu les Poeles outlet in Paris on the Via de Aquaduct (something like that) that runs at street level from the Bastille Opera along Ave Daumesnil. We priced there & Dehillerin/A.Simon and the Villedieu prices were higher because it was higher quality (thinker & heavier). Several years ago, there was an article by someone like Particia Wells that said she always took her copper there because she didn't trust anyone else to re-nickel it.

Thanks Everyone! I found Dehillerin and bought a small saute pan. This was more about having an extra special purchase on my first visit to Paris. I'll remember it everytime I use the pan.

If in the Périgord noir, pass by St. Amand de Coly to visit the workshop of MOF Alain Lagorsse next to the information office. My wife now regrets not buying a whole set of his pans, but the stuff was pricey even then.
