L’Objet qui Parle- the most whimsical Vintage Shop in Paris

One of the things I love most about Paris is how you can wander down any street and find an enchanting shop…they are everywhere.  On our last day in Paris we were strolling around Montmartre, and we had finished our general shopping so we just delighted in admiring beautiful storefronts and peeking inside enticing doors.

And here was a tiny little shop…so stuffed with vintage treasures they were bursting onto the sidewalk from inside.  The owner has a fabulous eye for mixing and displaying his treasures.  I was so intrigued by the rolls of old wallpaper.  Abra found an old French world globe that she had to have.

Don’t you love these bridal figures, in various stages of dishevelment?

I very badly wanted one of the desk bells…but alas I had spent my budget. The prices weren’t cheap, but comparable to a decent antique shop…and he did negotiate.

The front window had a very old marionette stage and puppets.

If you delight in vintage..and especially very whimsical vintage items…this shop is a must see while you are visiting Montmartre.
