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.

The Vanves Fleamarket is less known than the Saint Ouen one in the North, but very worth a visit.
