Apprentis d'Auteuil - Vintage fashion, household items, English books and more
The foundation's mission is to integrate the 13,000 youths, who were in difficult situations, into society as responsible adults. Each of the children benefits from personalized attention designed to develop their individual characters and are assisted in selecting from 12 different trades, including the hospitality industry, construction, agriculture, education, sports, and science.
Even though I frequently pass the Apprentis d'Auteuil on my way to the post office and have been wanting to dine at the Brasserie d'application, where the students prepare and serve meals, it wasn't until yesterday that I discovered that there is also a second-hand store full of inexpensive treasures. Simone, an English woman who volunteers in the boutique on Monday and Tuesday, showed me the collection of English books for 2€ and leather bound antique books that attract enthusiastic dealers. She advised me to get there as soon as the doors open because that's when they've newly replenished their shelves.
If you live in Paris, the Apprentis d'Auteuil gladly accepts articles in good condition every day from 7:00 am until 9:00 pm.
