Collection: Bouquinistes Auction

The Bouquinistes (book sellers) have been setting up along the Seine since the 16th century. They sell everything from books to photographs, watercolors, old magazines and advertisements, souvenir trinkets and more. Today, there are 227 book sellers selling from the green boxes that line the Seine. They’re located from the Quai du Louvre to Pont Marie on the Right Bank and from Quai Voltaire to Quai de la Tournelle on the Left Bank.

The lockdowns and lack of tourism in Paris due to the pandemic has been devastating for the bouquinistes.

In the spirit of the season, the Bouquinistes Auctions are meant to do a little bit extra to give back to the bouquinistes by bringing a selection of products online. Each item is priced at cost. 100% of the additional revenues generated at auction will go directly back to the bouquiniste. 

Items are hand-picked in Paris. 

The first Bouquinistes Auction raised over €1,100 for two deserving bouquinistes.
