This big flea market is best known for the used books, but there are lots of other things sold. Lots of good bargains and fun to explore.

So...the market is interesting, it’s a really great experience to visit a Parisian market, but the prices are crazy. CRAZY! It is after all, a flea market, not a high street shop. If you are travelling from another country that doesn’t use the euro, you...More

A bit out of the way but definitely worth a visit if you are into antiques and curiosa. Most of the sellers are lovely and with a bit of luck you can find really interesting things.

The vintage items at the market were overpriced however outside the formal market there’s lots of vendors selling everything. Not worth the effort if you are looking for a bargain and have a short stay in Paris. Vintage stores near Pigalle station were a better...More

It has been sometime since I visited my favourite flea market in Paris at Porte de Vanves. I found it much depleted and far more expensive than previous years. Well, it was a cold, wet Saturday in February. I only spent €2 on two old...More
