About the 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. 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. We've been able to arrange meetings during the lockdown to bring a selection of products online. Each product is priced at cost. 100% of the additional revenues generated at auction will go directly back to the bouquiniste.
Each item is one of a kind and was hand-picked in Paris.
