I'm looking for any interesting records stores in Paris that sell 2nd hand vinyl. African, soul, jazz, rare and unusual titles...
I will be in Paris first week of June 2018 and staying in the 9th Arr. But travelling the city is no problem of course.
Any tips for a shop that still exists are appreciated...:-)

merci beaucoup!

I really liked "Heartbeat vinyl" in Paris. Lots of rare Japanese pressings. Also "La silence de la Rue" is nice. Both are in the same area near Bastille.

good tips. Bastille is always a nice area for shopping records...thanks

Here's the shops listed in Vinylhub for Paris https://www.vinylhub.com/record-stores/paris-france?mode=map

great overview, thanks

I visited "Heartbeat vinyl" in Paris upon The_Chosen's tip. Thanks!
A mouth-watering collection for sure but a bit too pricey imo. These days Discogs might be a better option to find the sort of selection -especially disco/african- much more friendly priced.
The owner has a great taste and shop.

"La silence de la Rue" was an eye-opener. No real second hand selection here, only new reissues of every genre possible. Incredible! But a few hidden gems found here... Mint Fela Kuti ' Na Poi' french pressing at a bargain price. Friendly owner as well....
