A visit to Come on Eileen in Kremlin-Bicêtre

IMG_7453.jpgCome on Eileen in the Parisian suburb of Le Kremlin-Bicêtre is surprising on two levels: 1) it’s expensive and 2) it’s got very good secondhand clothes.

Walking past, you might dismiss it as a pile-it-high-sell-it-cheap vintage store, so it’s hard to believe that these crowded rails are hiding mint condition Karen Millen, Ba&sh, The Kooples, Sandro, Eric Bompard etc. Be prepared to rummage, though.

If you’ve got a fair bit of money to spend you could pick up a lot of pieces in here. And if you’re on a budget, look no further than the tables in the centre of the shop that are piled high with lower-priced items.

For me, a committed bargain hunter who occasionally splashes the cash on something fabulous, the interest of Come on Eileen lies in the ‘reject’ €10 table of upmarket brands. Rifle through it and you might just come up with a bargain. I spotted a Paul & Joe Sister cardigan, but closer inspection revealed a small mark that I wasn’t sure would come out. I did however, buy a lovely NS..Cashmere blue polo neck jumper that looks immaculate now that I’ve got rid of slight bobbling under the arms.
