Tati comes to quartier St. Germain

tati.jpg Tati is one of Paris’s most iconic stores, and it has arrived in our neighborhood, on Blvd. St. Germain, near the corner of rue de Buci. The ultimate haven for bargain-basement prices, it’s not for the fainthearted or claustrophobic, your truly. I really have to brace myself to go in here. On an average day it’s jam-packed with people rifling through the jumbled trays in search of a great buy, which they always succeed in finding, since the key word here is cheap — utterly, unabashedly cheap. One of its most famous deals was underwear for just EUR 0.15 a pair.
