On a Thursday afternoon the vast majority of the shops were closed, and many more were empty. Either junk or very high prices. Suggest you spend you weekdays touring and wait for saturday big market at clignancourt.
The Village St. Paul is listed in many travel guides and websites as a place to visit when in Paris.

I live a few blocks away and must agree with the negative reviews. The charming little stores the positive reviews rave about exist almost everywhere in Paris. Definitely not worth going out of your way to see. In general, the trouble with TripAdvisor is way...More

The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
