Siga Siga is a phrase that means "slowly, slowly" in Greek. This is the concept that the founders of the Siga Siga boutique wanted to bring to their shoppers.

Siga Siga is located in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. It's a small, quaint boutique, cluttered with clothes, toys and knickknacks of all shapes and sizes. But aside from its particular charm, Siga Siga is totally unique in another important way: shoppers can take as many items as they want, without paying a cent for them.

According to boutique founder Debora Fischkandl, Siga Siga is "a different kind of place... where you can meet people, discuss; a place about gift and generosity, where you take your time a bit and enjoy." To this end, the shop also offers free coffee and tea. It's a place for neighbors to gather and exchange the items they no longer need for new ones they will value and treasure.
