Paris Flea Market Shopping + Tips

Shopping at the Paris Flea Market is the perfect way to spend a weekend. In this video, we explore the most famous flea market in Paris at Porte de Clignancourt called Les Puces de Saint-Ouen and share our tips for how to maximize your visit. 'Les Puces' means 'the fleas' and this market is made up of many smaller markets. It covers 7 hectares and there are between 120,000 and 180,000 visitors every weekend! We recommend going to Marché Vernaison for the most fun browsing and the best chance of finding something you can afford (in some areas the prices are in the 5 figure range...). Here you'll find many stalls with antiques, stationary, clothing, beads, cameras, buttons, furniture, home goods, and many more items to dig through. It's so big that you really need a map. We're sharing our favourite stalls and where to find them. If you're someone who LOVES thrifting and going to markets in general (like me!) then going here will feel like visiting the mothership. Even if you don't usually enjoy this sort of shopping, however, you'll still find it interesting because there are so many unique finds and it's a great chance to interact with locals. -------------------- ????WANT A $50 AIRBNB TRAVEL CREDIT?
