    Galerie des minimes: Trinkets, paintings, lamps...

    by Norali Updated Jun 4, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A huge shop (rather a warehouse) where to spot some antiques items.

    Don't set your mind from what you see just in front of the shop... Old chairs, tables... these seem to be items left there to have them repaired.

    Give it a try, enter the room, stroll along the alleys with their sides packed of nice pieces, antiques pieces, figurines, trinkets, vases, clocks, porcelaines boxes, lamps in several drawers.

    In the back of the shop, still two levels awaiting for you to discover the antiques.. paintings (small and huge alike); jewelry; pieces of furniture (old off course)

    Plan to do it for hours.. at least, this is what I would do next time, I was in a hurry looking for a specific item so hadn't taken much time to do it but will surely return. I am NOT an antiques specialist but I love strolling through those alleys, packed shelves... dreaming of combinations, nice setting.

    I think I would spend hours there. It's so easy to marvel at old things, imagining their past lives, trying to know their secrets...

    Of course, not to mention that the whole Place du sablon is the very antiques' area, packed with "galeries", antiques shops.

    What to buy: Antiques pieces, figurines, trinkets, vases, clocks, porcelaines boxes, lamps in several drawers.

    Pieces of furniture; paintings

    Glassware and dishware

    What to pay: depends on what you buy... tricky he!!!

    MASKS

    LARGE SQUARE covered with good on trestle-tables and on pieces of canvas of velvet on the cobble stones!

    The enormous variety of goods make this place so attractive and....the haggling.....



    What to buy: whatever you like......for yourself, for the neighbour who mowed your grass and watered your plants, for friends and kids......

    The choice is yours.....

    Perhaps is what you see in the photo I took something for your mother-in-law???????



    What to pay: do haggle.....that is a necessity! or you will pay too much!

    open air art market: Art market in Place d'Espagne

    by monicarc Written Oct 11, 2009

    Not sure if this was a special Sunday or not, but there was a very cute art market, selling hand made type things, on the Place d'Espagne. We only saw it on Sunday, not during the week.

    What to pay: different prices

    Antiques & Flea Markets: Saturday Sunday Market by Sablons

    by Roadquill Updated Aug 2, 2013

    Located West of the fine art museum and palace, just North of Church of Notre Dame au Sablons, this outdoor market featured a good selection of used goods, jewelry, and the prices seemed reasonable, not cheap, but not sky high either. One of items I found interesting were the bread stamps from the 1,800's, where a family would stamp their unbaked break with the family "stamp" and then drop it off to the local baker. Lots of fine glasses and crystal.

    After a good breakfast we went to the flea market in Marolles. A very nice and typical flea market atmosphere. You can buy glasses, china, clothes, furnitures, books, postcards ...
