Many antique dealers and unusual shops (old books, old postcards, collectible cameras, etc.) have taken up residence in Passage Verdeau, one of the prettiest in Paris.
Beautiful storefronts bathed in light
Passage Verdeau, in the Grands Boulevards district, bears the name of its creator. Built in 1847, it is one of the most charming covered passages in the capital. It is located in the extension of two other well-known passages: the Panoramas and Jouffroy. All three of these sites form an original place to stroll. Many antique dealers and unusual shops (old books, old postcards, collectible cameras, etc.) have taken up residence in Passage Verdeau. The visitor’s eye is drawn to the beautiful storefronts bathed in light thanks to the high herringbone glass roof. The second entrance to the passage is at 31 bis rue du Faubourg Montmartre.
The treasures of the Passage Verdeau
Among the shops in Passage Verdeau, you can find the Roland Buret bookstore at number 6, which specializes in comics from the 1950s. Opposite, at number 7, the aptly named Bistrot brings a very Parisian scoundrel touch to the gallery with its cuisine very simple to taste between regulars and tourists. At n°8, Le bonheur des Dames is a delight for embroiderers. The Santon bookstore, at numbers 14 and 16, has a beautiful display of leather-bound books. The very small Farfouille bookshop is located at n°2. It adjoins a beautiful framing shop at n°29. More discreet than the passages Jouffroy and des Panoramas, less frequented, the passage Verdeau nevertheless conceals some treasures that connoisseurs will take pleasure in rediscovering.
