Inspiring Flea Markets in Paris

Last weekend i had the opportunity to go to Paris and visit two of the most charming Parisian Flea Markets, Portes de Vanves and Porte de Clignancourt (Puces de Saint-Ouen).

Following the indications of my last book acquisition
Both the markets are in the periphery of Paris, but with the metro we can reach them quite easily.

My first visit was to Portes de Vanves, i found it really charming and full of great finds at a reasonable price. Here are some delightful pics,

i specially loved this stand full or charming details,

really cute postcard :)

The second market i've visit was the Porte de Clignancourt (Puces de Saint-Ouen). This one is a bit different from the Portes de Vanves as its has permanent stalls. And it is composed by individual markets located in the same area. My favorite one was Marche Vernaison.

this piano was incredible, cannot even imagine how much would they charge for it :P

hello vintage Vogue!!

this was a stall that only sold old figures probably from old carousels but in perfect condition.

this group of markets that represents Puces de Saint-Ouen are simply a feast to the eye. You do see real antiques, but the prices go well together with their age :P
