Paris Shops: Les Puces de Saint-Ouen: Falbalas "Modes Vintage Dentelles"

OK maybe I say this all the time, but I mean it! This is one of my favorite places to shop in Paris!! Located at the Marché Dauphine in the clignancourt market, Falbalas is well.... simply fabulous! The Marché Dauphine houses mainly furniture but just pop your self up a flight of stairs and this little gem takes up booths 85-87.
Maybe I love this place partly because I am so very smitten with the wonderfully divine femme who owns the booth, as well as her strikingly debonair beau (who sadly wasn't there this visit).
Check out her gorgeous wood and bronze insect broaches!
These two have exquisite taste and always a wide range of beautifully hand picked vintage. They specialize in victorian with a mix of 20's-50's garb and accessories. Many of the pieces at Falbalas are museum and collection worthy and they run a hefty business for costume rental as well as having a line of vintage inspired shoes that you can order in any size.
There are fun things to see in every corner you look.
and you can ask for assistance to browse the rare goodies kept under wraps for serious buyers and rental.
Falbalas is a perfect resource for any lover of vintage as well as costume designers or stylist looking for something unique. Drop by and "Tell Them Taryn Sent You"!
Gros Bisous and Happy Shopping!
