Description

One of the oldest flea markets in the capital is held every weekend along the ring road to the east of Paris. Up and down the market alleys, you’ll hear vendors attempting to out-shout each other as they try to attract shoppers. To nab some good deals, arrive early and plan to spend the whole morning here. There are hundreds of second-hand goods and clothing stands to sift through.

Second-hand clothing

A must for die-hard fans of vintage clothing, the market is the perfect place to build a stylish wardrobe for the lowest possible price. You can find mythic Levi’s 501 jeans, but also lace, fur, trench coats, worn leather jackets and pre-WWII accessories. If you’re looking for something specific, don’t hesitate to ask the vendors, they’ll be happy to direct you toward other stalls.

The market is an ideal place for unearthing rare books, vinyl records, trinkets and small furniture. In this vast jumble of pre-used goods, you’ll also come across rugs, household linens and even bicycle repair tools. And remember, keep yours eyes open. Word has it someone bought a Van Gogh painting here in the 1990s for a meagre 1,500 Euros!
