The Saint-Paul neighborhood of the Marais is full of unique boutiques that are fun to poke around. One that I enjoyed this summer was EW at 21 rue St-Paul, which was full of objets anciens (obshjay anh-see-en), as it says on their business card. Ancien can have several meanings, including “ancient” or “old,” but here, I think the one that fits best is “bygone.” The items in EW will make you think of bygone times and cozy corners, like your grandmother’s kitchen. Whether you are looking for a complete canister set, a single café au lait bowl, or a quaint picture frame, this brocante is the place to go. Happy hunting for bygone objects!
