Porte de Vanves Flea Market

• 17 July 2009



















I experienced a Paris flea market for the first time last week, more specifically, the Portes de Vanves location. I’d read it was less overwhelming and over picked than Clignancourt...can anyone back this up? While there were some incredible wares—these two pictures depict some of the greater temptations—I found the prices way too high. I think I’ll stick to the vide-grenier/brocante scene…you find a lot of the same stuff but at less touristy prices.

  1. I lived right by this flea market and visited several times. I think the prices were never amazing, but I agree that it is less picked over and there are usually fewer people so it is easier to manage as well.

    Wow, I bet there were some amazing items!

    Looks like my idea of an enjoyable afternoon.
