Shopping for bargains in Paris

Shopping in Paris… high fashion glamour at its finest, right?  I guess that’s not how we roll.

Sympa is a bargain clothing store located in the Montmartre area of Paris where you can find lingerie, dresses, blouses, skirts, and coats–all designer seconds from previous collections at a 75% discount. There are at least five Sympa shops dotted around Montmartre area of Paris, France.

I believe this Sympa store is located along the rue de Steinkerque, a street once notorious for its prostitutes and dance halls. Imagine this “dumpster style” of shopping inside a former brothel that Pablo Picasso frequented during his Blue Period.
