Walking in, it feels like you’re entering your grandmother’s house, from the small quaintness of it to the old-Victorian decor. It’s full of everything she’s acquired over her life, including her clothing, hats and jewelry. Unlike Grandma’s, at Paris you don’t have to beg to get that beautiful 1940s dress; you just have to buy it.

If you’re feeling like a burlesque beauty or a rockabilly diva, this is the place for you. It’s more than that though. They specialize in men’s and women’s clothes from the ’50s through the ’70s. The outside of the store is unappealing to say the least, but don’t let that stop you, there are treasures within.
