This street/ area as others have said is a great street for shopping , food , clothing ,lots of stuff. One building of interest to me was at number 39 .It is the newer Uniqlo building which has a long history, its worth the look even if you do not shop.
It is a converted factory , a foundry used by goldsmiths for smelting waste products. The building is 3 storeys high with part of the basement left to its industrial past. On the fist floor protruding up through the roof is a 40 metre chimney which is from the old smelter in the basement, structural steel has also been used and left in areas, so the finish I consider very good and worth a look.

This is one of the best single streets for casual shopping in Paris. Dotted with many designer boutiques, you also find local clothing and jewelry designers in addition to several famous and not so famous perfumers. There's really something for everyone in just a few blocks. Be sure to check out the few art galleries, a musee or two and the small parc included on this single street.

All I ask for are a few more hours on this street so that I can give the boutiques that line this pleasure promenade the attention they deserve. The clothes are beautiful and tempting, but the real attractions are the houseware and other miscellaneous stuff. I must return!

Love to wander about on Sunday. Have done this many times. Like wandering in and out of all the lovely stores and having lunch in the area. There is music on the street and the vibe of lots of people having a good time. Nothing to like - and a way to spend an enjoyable day.

Part of what makes the Rue des Francs Bourgeois as nice as it is, is its location. On its east end, it borders on the Place des Vosges and the Musee Carnavalet, two of the most popular attractions in the Marais District. As you walk east, it becomes all about the shopping. And when you get to its western terminus, voila! there is the Centre Pompidou.

And there is lots of great shopping! My wife found an earring store that used to have an outlet in NYC (where we live) - our daughter had given her earrings from there years ago, and recently my wife lost one of the earrings, and she was heart-broken when she discovered that that NYC branch of the store was gone! We walked into the original store on this street, and my wife found a pair of gorgeous earrings to take the place of the one that was lost.

There is also a Pandora outlet where we got a wonderful momento of our time in France.

This street reminded us the most of NY's Soho (Spring Street especially). We enjoyed exploring on Rue des Francs Bourgeois!

It's the heart of the Marais and a place to come to for shopping, shopping, shopping. The stores around are small and unique. Not necessarily a place for bargains, but definitely a place for things you cannot find at home. Lots of historic buildings all around.

Located in the middle of the marais is the very popular shopping street especially on a Sunday, as most streets are closed to vehicle's, an added bonus is shops are allowed to remain open on Sundays, creating a hub for visitors.

One of the major streets in the Marais, famous for the clothing boutiques you will find here. The shopping is great, the architecture as well. Good place to spend some time.

We walked along here on our recent visit and were reminded of all of the very good and very high end fashion along here. So shoppers should flock here. Otherwise it is one of the few cross town streets in the Marais and supports a good bus line.

This narrow street crosses the Marais and provides rare cross-town traffic, including a bus line. On both sides are unique shops, some set back in courtyards. Lots of cafes, restaurants and historic buildings. The best of the Marais.
