No matter what you are looking for, somewhere it is waiting for you at the Paris Fleamarket. The last decades it changed from a pure street market into more permanent market with stall up to mall-like buildings.
A word of warning: Don't get involved into the gambling games going on near the ATM.
What to buy: Souvenirs, body safe, leather clothing.
What to buy: We found a large market at one end of Champs elysees selling great little souvenirs and ideas for presents. I picked up some postcards of London dating back to 1900 for only a few pence.
I love wandering around markets - always such fun trying out your french and successfully getting a few quid off the item you want !! :-)
What to buy: You'll find all the usual gear - clothes, accessories, foodstuffs, trinkets etc for good prices
The area around Porte de Clignancourt is great for shopping. Flea markets and lots of antiques stores.
check first for market days, then go there and spend many hours browsing around, making great bargains!
What to buy: Anything from furniture to clothes, jewellry or books... Also, there are nice coffeehouses where you can have a break!
What to pay: As much as you want to. No limits any way!
The Clignancourt Flea Market is arguably Europe's largest, and stretches for blocks and blocks on the north side of the city just beyond the Périphérique, Paris's infamous "ring road".
What to buy: You can find absolutely anything here -- somewhere -- from 18th century antiques to African sculpture, and from old, worn-out toys to 19th century erotica. If you can imagine it, you can probably find it here.
What to pay: From nothing to thousands.
At the Vanves Fleamarket there are some record dealers.
BTW Thanks to ForestqueenNYC for the scouting and the pictures.
What to buy: Records
What to pay: Higher prices than average
The Vanves Fleamarket is less known than the Saint Ouen one in the North, but very worth a visit.
Open Saturday & Sunday 7AM to 11PM.
What to buy: Old stuff.
