As part of an agreement signed with the City of Paris, the association Challenge Emmaüs opened a bric-a-brac at the 104 rue d’Aubervilliers back in 2010: The Emmaus appartement 104. The venue (once a privately owned flat) offers a very nice collection of vinyls (1€ each), numerous articles for knitting (wool, knitting needles …), furniture, dishes, books, Men jacket at 12€, leather bags at 6€ and a large choice of clothes for women and kids.
What is particularly fun with this venue, is that it has kept the arrangement of the original flat, which is organized according to the rooms of a house, as indicated by the large letters “EAT”, “SLEEP”, “DRESS”. This is why the space is called the “Apartment”.
Emmaüs is a charity which was originally founded in 1949 in France by priest Abbe Pierre, to combat poverty and homelessness, before it started spreading around the world.
