When I was in paria there was a whole street full of them. It was in the old university part of the city. I can't remeber the name....
Anyways one of the stores had great bags. There was what looked like a brand new gucci from 2001 for only 200 Euros!!
In Luxembourg (maybe too far away) there is a great store called Teddy's or Teddy Bear's or something like that. In the centre-ville (near Le Royale Hotel). They have great stuff. It seems like they only take designers. The old lady who owns the store also runs it. The only thing bad is that the hours are terrible. It is closed for about 1 week for every single type of vacation. I think it is opened only during the week from 10-4 or something like that. Great store though and wonderful stuff. It all comes and goes sooo quickly. Everytime I go there it seems like everything is different!!
Where are you looking for in Europe? What country(ies)?
Thank you, girls!!! I had some of the addresses in Paris, but I'm certainly adding a couple more
I'm leaving in the Netherlands and I'm many times a month in London... so I was wondering whether there were good shop on this side of the continent... but I guess I'll have to jump into the Thalys and take a couple of days to shop in France!!!
