I'm going to Paris in April, and am interested in a few types of stores in particular, first of all yarn stores as I'm a knitter, secondly plus sized clothing stores.  I'll be staying in the Marais, but I'm willing to go basically anywhere if it's fairly accessible by metro. Smiley

En premier, je veux m'excusé pour mon francais, c'est très rouille car je n'en parles presque plus, et j'en écrit meme moins, donc c'est tres mauvais au moment.  Je prends mes vacances a Paris en avril, et je m'interest dans les magasins de laine, et les magasins a tailles "rondes".  Je reste dans le Marais, mais je peux aller n'importe ou en Paris, si c'est pas tres loins d'un arret de metro.

Merci! Cheesy

I'd love to know since I'm going in April too!
I speak less than 5 words in French, but I can say merci!

There are some nice yarn shops in Paris, these are my favourites :
- la droguerie, 9 rue Jour 75001 Paris. Yarns (beautiful colours!), beads, ribbons, buttons... are sold in that trendy shop.
- Anny Blatt, 40 rue des Francs Bourgeois 75003 Paris. The yarns are sophisticated (and a bit expensive!)
- Entrée des Fournisseurs, 8 rue des Francs Bourgeois 75003 PARIS. There, you can find rowan yarns, nice books about knitting, really nice buttons...

Il y a quelques magasins de laine sympas à Paris, ce sont mes préférés :
- la droguerie, 9 rue Jour 75001 Paris. Du fil à tricoter (de belles couleurs !), des perles, des rubans, des buttons sont vendus dans cette boutique à la mode.
- Anny Blatt, 40 rue des Francs Bourgeois 75003 Paris. Les fils sont plus sophistiquéq (et un peu chers!)
- Entrée des Fournisseurs, 8 rue des Francs Bourgeois 75003 PARIS. Ici, vous pouvez trouver les fils de la marque "rowan" et de beaux livres de tricot, de jolis buttons etc...

Sorry for my bad english.

Have a nice stay in Paris !
PS : there are metros everywhere in Paris  Wink

I'm living in Paris at the moment, and my favourite places to buy wool are in Montmartre. Just go to Halle St. Pierre (Metro: sentier, go to the foot of the hill that the Sacre-Coeur is on, turn right, it's easy to find) there's "Mercerie St. Pierre", and a specialist wool shop "la Laine" or something just opposite. There's a couple of other shops in this area, too, that do wool.

However my local Monoprix (Ternes) also does a good selection.

Would also recommend "la droguerie", but it is pretty expensive (though very worth it!)

Hope that helps a bit


Whoops, just realised how incredibly old this thread is, sorry, am a newb!
