Mary-Jane Lee, who took the photos of Bimbo Tower record shop, also went to check out Passage Brady and wrote up this great recap of her experience there:

Located in the 10th arrondissement, Passage Brady is one of the longest covered streets in Paris and it’s a great place to find cheap Indian and Pakistani food. Along with the amazingly priced restaurants (lunch menus boast a 5 euro special), Passage Brady contains a small market with seasonal produce, hundreds of fragrant spices, and specialty rices and mixes. It’s also a nice place to shop for brightly colored clothing and jewelry, smell over 40 essential oils, and pick up a bollywood flick. I spent at least twenty minutes smelling each individual essential oil. I really wanted to get a lavender one and also a mint one. When Brian discovered I was serious about buying the whole store, it was time to leave. After eating and shopping there’s a little surprise at the end of the passage and that surprise is a giant mural with colors to match the rest of the passage.

We loved checking this place out. It’s definitely worth visiting.
