The right vintage spot: Alasinglinglin, for 1950 to 1970 buffs.
What does one find there? Small treasures in mint condition: velvet sofas, rocking chairs, tables, dressers, vintage toys for kids, 70’s chairs… A good way to pimp your decoration in small touches— without necessarily transforming your living room into an OSS 117 decor.
The price: everything depends on the heart-throb of the day. €80 for a batch of plates in Gien porcelain, €5 for a vinyl record by Michel Fugain, €580 for a mirror or a leather sofa,€60 for a 70’s hanging lamp, €90 the red typewriter, or €10 for a canvas “Parisien” keychain.
The good brunch: zip over for an Italian brunch to Scaria, the great restaurant / coffee-shop nearby that serves freshly squeezed fruit juices, granola, no gluten house pastries, slabs with burrata and focaccia from the grocery store, avocado toasts…
