Help me find great places to shop for clothes, antiques, and oddities in Paris.

I'm going to be in Paris for a weekend and I'm looking for interesting places to shop. I'm specifically looking for great consignment shops and odd little antique stores. In a perfect world, I would return to the U.S. with Channel dresses and Hermes scarves that are a few seasons old and maybe a human skull (a la David Sedaris)

I'm currently planning on going to Reciproque and La Belle Epoque for clothes. Where else should I go? Areas as well as specific stores are welcome.

I went to a fantastic Paris street market that's only open certain days of the week, but I can't remember the name. There were permanent shops with high-end antiques, all the way to vendors with piles of jeans on boxes. Lots of cool vintage stuff. It was really fun, though we didn't buy much.

You must go here. I can't remember much of a gift shop, but I certainly remember buying postcards but if you want to see a pretty amazing wunderkammer styled exhibit full of bones and creepy things floating in glass jars, this is the place.
