We visited many vintage shops this time in Paris. Our specific experience in Reciproque was rather a bad one. Very limited space, you almost hardly take a breath and in addition the products were looking dirty and uncared-for. Of course we know that vintage products are definitely not new, however, in most of the other vintage shops we visited the... More

Travelled in August 2014. Disappointed with the store lay out as well as the condition of the clothing and shoes. Some of the items were priced comparative to purchasing new items in the stores. Also, it appeared that there was a lack of care with the merchandise they did have as the store seem to be in disarray as well... More

As the other reviewer said it is a group of shops CRAMMED with merchandise. And with no air conditioning. I just couldn't stay in the place more than 5 minutes because of the heat. The place was empty of customers (two other americans left right before me because of the heat). I shop at high end consignment shops a lot... More

I came all the way here after reading all the reviews online. It is basically a few shops scattered close to each other along a street; one for women's fashion, bags and shoes, another for men's, another with accessories etc. There is a wide variety, and you might stumble upon the same item twice or more. They claim to be... More

Read about this place online and found a mix of reviews from good to bad and thought I would visit myself to find out. Second time in paris and found it quite easy to find. In total, there are six separate shops selling different items. The stores are stocked with hundreds, if not, thousands of items from Brands such as... More

Yes, t has a slightly musty smell, yes the people who work there have a very french attitude, and I agree the prices aren't cheap. But you're in Paris! These stores literally have hundred of chanel, Hermes, Dior, Prada, Valentino, etc items to fit through. I went twice. The first time I was there for an hour, the second time... More

The price is high for what they have!The smell in the shop is not good ! There are 3 small shops about3oo square meters not 7500 meters as they advertise. The clothes look like second hand . I saw used jimmy choo shoes for 460 euro!!!!

After reading about this place I was eager to visit and find some designer treasures while in Paris. I will NEVER EVER set foot in any of these stores again. The sales staff are rude, arrogant and actually followed me down and around each isle - even though I was in plain site from the front counter. So close that... More

I came here with big hopes of finding a great piece for my wife. My search was constrained to Hermes/Chanel bracelets as well as purses. I was at first very excited to find the swath of store fronts. However, the vast majority of the merchandise didn't seem that well taken care of. Granted, it is used...but this isn't the best... More

I am also surprised at the negative comments on here and loved rummaging through all the stuff and did pick up some great little beauty's, mostly accessories. I'm not sure what people expect to find when they go to these places, not all shiny and modern and things in place, the attraction is that you find something, irrespective of the... More
