Highlights near Paris

Notions of Paris

While wandering the back streets of the fabric district in Monmartre, I came across a delightful notions shops full of every kind of button imaginable. The neighborhood around the base of the Sacré Coeur has many more interesting vintage, sewing and boutique shops than the souvenir laden ones at the top.

This is just the sort of thing I look for when traveling! Do you have other recommendations on interesting, not necessarily trendy, areas to find fabric and sewing notions in Paris?

There are lots of fabric and notions stores near the bottom of the Sacre Coeur hill in Monmartre near the Anvers and Pigalle metro stations. I believe St Pierre has quite a few shops and you can wander west for more options. http://sewingkeepsmesane.blogspot.com/2008/05/day-seven-fabric-shopping-in-montmartre.html

La Droguerie, 9-11 rue du Jour (near the Forum des Halles) is a lot of fun - buttons, ribbons, edgings, knitting yarns, beads... makes even a non-crafter like me want to buy and imagine all the possibilities.
