The case of “Tombées du Camion” store
This is a city where you can find big design stores, but also cute little boutiques. Those are my favorite Shops in Paris. This is where the concept, is the key factor. “Tombées du Camion” is a shop in Montmartre, where the objects have high sentimental value, but little monetary value. Experiencing a case of a local authenticity with Paris by Martin.
You can find there forgotten things, accessories, jewelry, toys, threads, medicine bottles. Also remaining stocks of “new things” from old factories, that were never sold.
This is an original store that hides secrets and allows its visitors to discover new (old) stories. Exactly what Paris by Martin does.
Join us in order to explore some more of those very special spots in Paris.

How do we start with our Paris little local authentic shops exploration?
Paris is changing constantly. The local and international contexts affect the city dynamics. However, Paris remain Paris, as well as their different neighborhoods.
The best advice we can give is to avoid main streets. That is where most tourists´ traps are. Overpaying for bad quality is never a good deal. Maybe 90% of the shop you find in main avenues are touristic. Therefore, non-local, non-authentic, non-original Shops in Paris.
The key is to be curious and to “get lost”. Follow your feelings. If you like a street or you find an open door into a court yard, go for it! That is how you find treasures.
