The flea market trail in Paris for anyone who loves a great find
Paris is brimming with bric-à-brac traders and antique dealers. When I travel, I particularly enjoy bargain hunting, finding that singular souvenir object that will symbolize my trip. If this activity appeals to you as much as it does me, then you will love this itinerary which I devised for you, “A Sunday of Bric and Brac”. To begin, I recommend the Puces d’Aligre on Place Aligre, with its 40+ exhibitors, attractive prices and wide variety of items for sale. You can also take advantage of its market, one of the liveliest in Paris, for a nibble. From Place Charles de Gaulle, it takes just 20 minutes on the RER to get there (Gare de Lyon stop). Then, to continue on in a new atmosphere, I suggest a 20 minute walk to Village Saint Paul, an area boasting more than 20 speciality shops. And don’t hesitate to stroll through the Saint Paul district, overflowing with fantastic surprises. A great way to spend a Sunday full of terrific finds and, above all, friendliness.
