Charming bookshops in Paris?

Everyone has heard about the Shakespeare and Company bookshop in Paris but are they any other bookstores that stand out like this? Does anybody know of any interesting second hand gems I can discover whilst there?

    Oh, there are so, so many! My favorite is probably Librairie F. Jousseaume in the Galerie Vivienne, Paris. Aside from having an amazing selection of used books, it's just a stunning, stunning store. Their business card is a little work of art so be sure to ask for one.

    I would also try Librairie Paul Vulin in the Passage Jouffroy . It's great for coffee table/art books at really good prices.

    I also like Librairie François Chanut although the guy who runs it can be somewhat surly if I'm remembering correctly--I haven't been in a while.

    Try not to miss Librairie Michèle Dhennequin on the Rue du Cherche-Midi I've found some wonderful old gems there for just a euro or two and the place looks like it hasn't been touched since about 1789. The woman who runs it is lovely and will let you take a picture of the place as long as you promise not to get her in the shot.

    Be sure to also visit the famous Les Bouquinistes that peddle their wares along the Seine. A lot of them just sell junky re-prints of French ads, but if you get a good one, you find some incredible treasures. Librairie Michèle Dhennequinimage from ilab.org

    according to the question of the gem shop I definitely suggest you to visit a little shop close to Métro Odéon . THere by you have a street full of japanese restaurants, if you go up there you can find a little shop, the owner is an Afghan man. I swear you can find there whatever jewllery from Central Asia.
