Rebecca Perry Magniant is an American woman passionate about Paris– the culture, the food, and, of course, the shopping. Rebecca first visited Paris at the age of 18, and upon returning home, wrote in her journal, “I hope I come back to live here some day.” She continued visiting France every few years, spending a summer learning French in Grenoble, France, and continuing to dream about living in Paris . She finished her undergraduate degree at the University of Missouri- Columbia, and went on to receive her master’s in art therapy from the George Washington University .
As luck would have it, she met her future husband while living in Washington, DC, and as we all know, dreams do come true– hers did when she moved to Paris in 2002 with her Parisian fiancé, now husband.
While exploring Paris & learning to live “la vie francaise,” Rebecca started to find the bonnes addresses in Paris and voila! the idea for Chic Shopping Paris was born. Starting in 2003, Rebecca combined her love of shopping with her desire to share her passion and insider tips with friends, both new and old.
Museums, monuments, & restaurants– they are all in the guidebooks. What Chic Shopping Paris offers is secret addresses & shopping tips, bilingual personal guides– the ins-&-outs that only a good Parisian friend would share with you.
Our expert bilingual guides do not work on commission & can therefore offer you objective, unbiased advice. Our goal is to help you use your time in Paris wisely, whether it’s your first time here or your fifth. Rather than offer tours on a variety of topics, we organize shopping tours exclusively, focusing all of our attention on discovering new shops & trends for your benefit. Chic Shopping Paris’ private guided tours are devoted to helping you take back “Paris in your bag.”
