"Looking backwards..." Shopping Tip by sourbugger
Shopping, Paris: 17 reviews and 15 photos
France is firmly in Euroland, the new currency accepted right across Europe (except for the UK and Switzerland).
Some French however hanker back for the days when the French Franc was the only currency in town. Hence a few relics remain, as in the picture. It will however only accept the new-fangled Euro's in it's tills.
This shop (if you really want to buy some cheaply produced tat) is just north of the Gare St Lazare on Rue Amsterdam
UPDATE 2014 : it must have gone by now, but it would be wonderful if someone could confirm...no trace on the internet
