Parisians' Favorite "Bazaar":

The less glamourous but more friendly sister of chic department stores like Galeries Lafayette, the Bazaar de l'Hotel de Ville, known simply as BHV to Parisians, is an always-bustling hive in the smack center of town, right across from City Hall (Hotel de Ville) after which it's named. Best-known for its very extensive home and hardware sections, BHV's flagship on Rue de Rivoli also has sizable sections devoted to beauty, fashion, accessories, books and crafts, as well as a separate men's store, wine shop and even a zany pet accessories outlet.
