I was with a friend who was doing a little research on used clothing stores the other day and, while I am not a shopper, it was fun. Most of the shops were in the Marais.

One store had clothing artfully displayed on the ceiling.

Can you see the ring with the rabbit on it? I rather liked it.

A peek in this window shows a really elegant clothing store, sort of a one of a kind nowadays.

In one of the shops you had to descend these dangerous stairs to look at more clothing. My friend found a really nice light raincoat for only ten euros! I don’t remember the name of the shop-sorry.

Used boots for sale. I think, this being the Marais, that they were for transvestites or at least someone in show business.
