Monday, January 16, 2012 Never-Ending Flea Markets







Paris is known for many things, one of which being, the phenomenal flea markets.  You can find almost anything you think you want or need, and then things you didn't know you wanted or needed, and I found my favorite market yet this weekend.

I have gone to the flea markets in the North, near Porte de Clignancourt, a number of times, and I have never left with anything other than some spices (that I have yet to use).  Part of this is because everything seemed was either over priced, or a knock off of some sort.  But problems solved, I went to the Marche aux Puces in the South, near Porte de Vanves, and finally felt like I found the market for me.  From vintage furs, to rhinestone necklaces, to funky art, tools, Scandinavian furniture, dishes from the 18th century.  The list goes on.  I picked up one of those aforementioned rhinestone necklaces for 10 euros, quite a steal, along with some silk scarves and gorgeous gold tea cups.  All in all a successful trip for me, who otherwise has rarely brought out the money purse in other Parisian flea markets

Those bow ties! Gosh I love and miss Paris flea markets. Here in LA at flea markets, I feel like a champion if I find one or two good things, but in Paris, great restraint is required for me not to dump all of my belongings and fill up all of my suitcases. Thanks for sharing!
