La Petite Fripe, Shoes Haven

La Petite Fripe, Shoes Haven

From his former boutique, Lhassan just kept the name. La Petite Fripe, well known by the vintage fans, left rue Oberkampk to move and most of all to change. And now, shoes have the place of honour. Still vintage but new. It is a shop with pretty pastel colours, where we discover the selection Lhassan made. Opened at the beginning of October, La Petite Fripe overflows with all kinds of treasures, polka-dot platform shoes, vinyl slippers and feather stiletto, classic or more original: the range of styles is always impressive.

– 41 Avenue de la République, 75011 Paris.

I ended up with 25.000 pairs of shoes, vintage and new, so I think I have some time in front of me before selling them all!

How did you become a second-hand goods dealers and then a second-hand clothes dealer and a shoemaker?

Lhassan

It was a coincidence. One day, I went to a flea market and I liked the atmosphere. I went to a lot of storerooms to get a stock and I had a try. I opened my first shop in Paris in 2008. When I closed my second-hand clothes shop rue Oberkampf at the end of the lease, I thought of leaving Paris to go and live in Marseille. But then, once more by accident, someone called me, telling me he had shoes to sell me. He was a shoemaker who was retiring and selling me his stock. I ended up with 25.000 pairs of shoes, vintage and new, so I think I have some time in front of me before selling them all!

Do you have a common thread in your selection?

Lhassan

Quality, of course: I mainly sell Italian or French shoes. Then, I love what’s unexpected, with a touch of classic. 90% of my customers are women. I have a few pairs for men but almost only small sizes.

Did you decorate the shop?

Lhassan

Yes. I tried to use the space as much as I could. Then, all the objects here are things I piled up over time. As I was a second-hand goods seller before, I still have a huge stock a pieces of furniture and objects just waiting for a second life.

Is there a place you would recommend us in Paris?

Lhassan

 

I like eating and especially in the small canteens in the neighbourhood. I like a lot , rue Ternaux, a restaurant which makes adapted Bengali food.

Do you have other projects to come?

Lhassan

A website for online sale. My customers who don’t live in Paris want it.
