Paris – Les Puces de Saint-Ouen

October 20th, 2011

A bit out of the way if you’re based centrally, but the biggest flea market in the world is definitely worth a look when you’re in Paris. Handy map and directions here (basically don’t be put off when you get to the first crap market, the real deal is further in), the area is absolutely enormous so if you’re serious about your flea markets you may want to target a specific section, but we were quite happy to just take turns spontaneously.

    Ooh! The keys on the blue door!

    Reminds me of the Thai version in Bangkok – Chatuchak Weekend Market. Right down to the bit about everything on the outer edges being crap and wandering around taking random turns here and there!
