I admit I went there hoping to find something along the lines of Camden Town and other places like it, but the Puces are exactly what it promises: a haven for all kinds of antiques, as well as some modern art works and luxury items. People who have a fascination with this kind of stuff really can't miss it, for... More

This is one of the major antiques shopping destinations in the world - no exaggeration. There are thousands of merchants selling goods from high end to moderate to low end. It helps to know what you are buying, because there are reproductions, or pieces with extensive repairs. You can haggle on price - expect 20% or more discount. If you... More

There are definitely treasures to be found, whether it be vintage clothing or antique furniture, cutlery, pottery or just a meal in the quirky restaurant. But be alert to the pick pockets and keep your hands on your cell phone! We took the metro up to the end of the number 4 line and walked about 5 minutes to the... More

Every time I am in Paris I like to pop into the Puces and be tempted by all sorts of bits and pieces from the exquisite to the everyday. Visiting in August was a bit of a pain as many vendors were 'en vacance' but that didn't spoil our visit. If you plan to ship things home first stop at... More

My sister wanted to go to Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen to look for small pins/badges that had a motorcycle on them. I wanted to find some old skeleton keys, that used to unlock doors of old. We wandered for an hour or so, with no luck. Finally, we asked a vendor if HE knew where we might find these... More

Huge but not worth the time. My wife and daughters love shopping, but even they couldn't find much to get excited about. Kept on worrying that the cellphones the hawkers were trying to sell had been stolen a few minutes earlier from other attendees.

Everything from clothes, food, jewellery to a flea market. Can take hours to walk round this. Repetitive but some choice finds to be made.

Agree with a prior reviewer (thanks for this head's up!) Got off at Porte Clingancourt metro stop and were slammed with dirt, construction, the cheapest possible stuff for sale, and shifty looking characters (I've travelled widely and trust my intuition borne of experience...) Fortunately, we put our head's down and headed for the Rue de Rosiers and were not disappointed.... More

Well, nbefore we ventured, we were told that a lot of shops would be closed during the first two weeks of August as that is when the French take their vacations. Well, they were right. There were many more closed shops than were open. And, a lot of stuff was garage sale junk. The stuff that wasn't junk was no... More
