First time at the Braderie and we thought it was great. Free to wander round, a mix of car boot collectibles and antique/vintage stalls with lots of interesting things. A great little funfair park for little ones in Lille too (not the temporary Braderie one,...More

I attend the braderie as a buyer of collectable items which has always been the main attraction of Lille. This years event over 3 days was dismal, yes there are miles of stalls but the quality dealers are few in number.I would estimate genuine antique...More

It was my first time here and i loved it, the crowd was on their feet and everyone was drinking and buying stuff. But don’t go for shopping as things are mostly secondhand or bad.

Having visited the Brocante in Lille since 2000 and being disappointed last year at its cancellation we were looking forward to this year. We were very disappointed. None of the vendors with the large furniture were there, it was virtually empty when we arrived and...More

We happened to take a train from Ghent for the day, and had no idea this event was on. We were wondering why the pedestrian area is so big even just outside the train station. Then we came upon the tables and more tables and...More

After last years being cancelled at short notice it was great to be back in 2017. The organisers have improved the event through weeding out modern rubbish stalls and suiting areas to help the public. The reduced number of streets being used did not lead...More

After a years break, this years event was really good. Not so crowded but all local people with stalls and a few trade stalls. In previous years there was a lot of commercial rubbish being sold. We had a fantastic weekend and the security was...More
