I will be in Paris September. Where are the best upscale shops for costume jewelry and handbags---I have been there many times but usually just happen upon places. I am staying in the Marais dictrict

I like Satellite and Les Nereides

Les Lereides used to have a shop in St Germain near rue du Four but I don't see it mentioned on their website.

In the Marais on the veille du temple, is Jamin Puech that makes unique handbags. Bergdof Goodman sells a few.

Metal Pointu's. There are several stores in Paris. In the Marais they are at 19 rue des Francs-Bourgeois.

Babylone Paris. Several stores, the one in the Marais is at 22 rue des Francs-Bourgeois.

Also on rue des Francs-Bourgeois is the tiny storefront workshop of Inge Lex.

There are several stores on the rue St-Paul where I have found nice jewelry as well.

The Marais is pretty tacky compared to "upscale" areas. Looks like you need to empty your bank account around St. Germain des Prés or avenue Montaigne in the 8th.

There are two shops in St-Germain that have beautiful upscale costume jewelry, and I can't remember the name of them. I know exactly where the one is (rue Bonaparte, the block between St-Germain and rue Jacob) and the other is either on southern end of Bonaparte or rue de Rennes in same area. I will be in Paris in May so will check out the name and specific addressses.
It's one of those situations: if I'd hear the name, I'd know it! Maybe someone else will come up with it before I'm over there. I'm thinking it starts with a "C"?

Aha, I just fiddled around with Google maps and found it: Fabrice, both locations on rue Bonaparte, one just south of Blvd. St-Germain and the other north, as mentioned in my other post.
