The main-entrance of 'La Grande Epicerie'
Like they say on their website - 'Discover a unique place where eating is an art'. This place has everything a gourmet dreams of.
All kind of specialities in fruit, spices, oils, pasta, sushi and many other delicacies, as well as a lot of wine, beer and liqour can be found here!
This is a must see if you love good food!!
What to buy: As mentioned above - this place has everything for the kitchen - you won't be miss anything!
I even found my beloved canadian beers here - Moosehead Beers :)
What to pay: It's not the cheapest place in the world - but it's not that bad either, it's hard to five
Directions: Take the metro to the 'Sevres-babylone' station, and you'll find this place just down the road...

The entrance to Le Shop - Paris
This clothe store is something different. It's an experience to go here just to look, as the two-floor shop has it's own DJ as well as a tatoo-shop! You can play playstation...grap a cup of water and just cruise around to search for something you like.
What to buy: Much of what they sell here is skater-style, but there is a lot of different clothes to choose from.
What to pay: It's not the cheapest shop in town, but you'll be able to find something at a fair price-level.
Address: 3, Rue d'Argout, 75002 Paris
Directions: Closest metro: Etienne Marcel

Ready for a 'trip back in time'?
This place is fantastic. It's not only a bookshop still in function. This english bookstore has great history, and it's almost like a small museum that takes you back in time in the middle of the 'big city rush'. Take your time to walk around in this charming old-style shop that offers a wide range of books, and maybe enter the upper floor(s) via the tiny steps...but beware that you don't step on the cat that runs around :)
What to buy: Ernest Hemmningway used to come borrow books here when he lived in Paris in the 1920'ies...in fact he wrote a chapter about this place in his book 'A Moveable Feast'.
Except for Hemmingway, Shakespeare and 'those guys' you can also find such as guidebooks, books on art and so on...
Absolutely woth a visit just to feel the atmosphere!
What to pay: You can find books here from 3 euros and up...I paid 13 euros for my Hemmingway-book.
Address: 37 rue de la Bucherie, 75005 Paris
Directions: You'll find this shop in the 5th arrondissement. From Notre Dame, walk across the bridge to the 'left bank' (below the Seine looking at a map), and you'll find it nearby!

Want to bring home a souvenier from Champs-Elysés?
If you are very rich or just like fancy cars, take a walk down Champs-Elysés and enter the big stores of Mercedes and Peugeot...
What to buy: They'll have some really cool models on display that can be seen up close. The Peugeot store also offers a wide range of merchandise!
What to pay: You better bring your big wallet if you wanna bring home a new car, but the Peugeot stores merchandise can be bought for a reasonable price.
Address: Avenue des Champs Elysées
Directions: To find these stores, walk on the right side of the avenue towards Arc de Triompe...
The entrance of the bookstore in Centre Pompidou
This big bookshop is located inside the Centre Pompidou and is accessible without paying any entrance ticket for the art museum inside the center.
What to buy: The shop offers a wide range of good books about art, graphics and photography, which makes it a great place to go and buy something to get inspiration for your work, or just for the interest of it.
What to pay: These books aren't cheap, but you can probably find something at many price-levels.
Address: Well, inside the Centre Pompidou
Directions: When you enter the huge building, it'll be on your right side!
The entrance at Champs-Elyses
Even though you are not a soccer fan, it's a good experience to pay a visit to the official fanshop of the Parisian soccer team - PSG
The huge two-floor fanshop can be found on Champs-Elysees and is a must-see if you love soccer...unless you are a Marseille fan :0)
What to buy: This shop offers everything a PSG-fan could ask for, and you may even find yourself buying something though you've never seen the team play.
Jereys, t-shirts, jackets, balls, gloves, flags, pins, stickers, teddy bears...everything!
You can even get your own name and number on a jersey...made right in the store in 10 minutes.
What to pay: I bought an original player jersey with name and number, and had to pay a little more than 80 Euros, but you can find stuff there at all prices-levels, and you might even be lucky to be there for the 'sales' period.
Address: 27 Avenue des Champs Elysées, 75008 Paris
Directions: If you are coming from the 'Lovre-end' of Champs-Elysees, you gotta stick to the left side of the avenue, and you can't misse the two-floor shop in decorated in red, white and blue.
