Montmarte is known for its picturesque cafes and super cute stores. If you are in the market for authentic Parisian vintage, you have to stop by the By Flowers vintage store.
From hats to shoes, By Flowers has an ever-changing selection of classic Parisian vintage options in a cozy shop a stone’s throw away from Sacré-Cœur. The perfect escape for any tourist with their family and for locals alike.
By Flowers is possibly the most underrated vintage store in Paris for two reasons: (1) the great selection and (2) the fabulous, welcoming owners. Every time I stop in here there is something new and different. On my last visit to the neighborhood, I went by twice the same weekend and they already had new items!

By Flowers is a cozy shop located at 86 R. des Martyrs, 75018 Paris, nearby the Abbesses and Pigalle metro stops. This cozy shop doesn’t look like much from the outside, but on the inside, you’ll find excellent vintage finds.

A lot of visitors to Paris go to the “kilo shop” and don’t get to experience true vintage shopping. If you go to a kilo shop chances are the clothes aren’t great quality and are super washed out. You will find the opposite here. By Flowers curates their selection to only the best and most unique items for their customers.
Ditch the kilo shops and stop by the By Flowers vintage store. You’ll walk away happy with full bags and a full heart.
Montmarte Vintage Shopping
By Flowers is located in Montmarte, a fabulous area. Montmarte is known for being the birthplace of several famous artists including Vincent Van Gogh who would sell his paintings in the Place du Tertre. I have actually purchased several paintings here.

Outside of art, Montmarte has great antique shops and vintage stores. By Flowers is actually located on a great street for vintage shopping, there are several vintage stores on the same block, like Flash Vintage. It is also nearby several cafes to catch a break between stores.
