We were at the Marche aux Puces in May of this year. We purchased 3 chandeliers, 1 pair of sconces and 2 mirrors for shipping back to Hong Kong. On a vendor's recommendation, we engaged Edet International to pack, crate and ship to Hong Kong where we live. One of our pieces was a 24 arm crystal hanging chandelier measuring... More

As other reviewers have noted, be sure you are going where you want to go. Study maps and reviews and Metro schedules before you go. This is a HUGE flea market that when approached from the north (20 minute walk from the Metro station) will overwhelm the senses with huge garden pieces, high end furniture from ornate antiques to Mid-Century...

We took the #4Clignancourt Metro and got off at the end of the line and walked for 10 minutes to heart of the action. On the way, you walk pass another monstrous street puces aux marche that really isn't part of the main event, in our opinion. We didn't stop but headed to the real thing. Along the Avenue de... More

After many Paris visits, I finally made it to the antiques market! We took the Metro line 13 to Garibaldi, then walked quite a way down the rue des Rosiers before reaching the first group of market shops and stalls. An amazing number of high quality French and Asian antiques, with about 1400 antique dealers. Though I knew I could... More

As lots of other reviewers say - this vast market area stretches from Clignancourt metro, under the peripherique and on. Initial markets are just tat, clothes, cheap rubbish etc. Once past them and unde the motorway bridge, you come to the "flea". Several different markets with a huge range of antiques but mostly high prices and you need to bargain... More

Here in the US I think we think of a flea market as s collection of mostly junk where you can find some good stuff. Les Puces is much much more than that. At the entry there must be a half mile of mostly clothing and shoe stalls, all new items. Away from this there are areas dedicated to many... More

I highly recommend a visit to this amazing market. And, heres’s a few suggestions to make a visit there easier: 1) Use the directions from Oh Happy Day to get to the market. They are very detailed and even include photos for those that need visuals (like me). http://ohhappyday.com/2011/03/how-to-get-to-the-paris-flea-market/ 2) The market is big, but it is actually 15 smaller...

After fighting our way through the touts to get to the correct market, there were a lot of over priced stalls. While interesting and quaint, I wouldn't waste my time again. It was a very unsavoury part of Paris and felt unsafe. Don't waste your time in the markets selling junk

If you only go to the southern part of the market with will probably be disappointed. The real antiques and interesting finds are off the Rue des Rosiers with multiple different markets coming off this. Yes there are a lot of hawkers hanging around, particularly in the touristy part, just ignore then and keep walking. And as for pick pockets... More
