When you make a trip to Paris, you never run out of things to do. The first time you go, you should make a point to see all of the famous things like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Mona Lisa, etc. This usually takes up your entire first time traveling to Paris.
I have been to Paris several times now and on one of my last trips with my sister, we wanted to do something a little different. Before we left for the trip, I googled Flea Markets in Paris and found three of the largest ones. I wrote down the information and away we went.
It was very easy getting to the Flea Markets by subway. Just a short ride and you’re there.
There’s lots of things to look through while strolling through the booths. I found that there were a lot of booths that had shoes for sale.
If you’re in the market for a watch, you can find them there. I wouldn’t buy a watch from a Flea Market though, lol.
There’s lots of jewelry around, but again, I’d be wary of buying gold from a Flea Market.
There’s a lot of clothes for sale as well. One time in Amsterdam, I found this vintage Fireman’s leather coat for a very cheap price. It was in great condition and I still have it and wear it often during the winter.
My point being, you can find some really cool clothes and such if you look hard enough. All you have to do is wash it well and/or have it dry-cleaned when you get home and you’re ready to go.
Nice dress shirts still in the wrappings.
Blue jeans in a lot of different styles. I found a cool pair of pants in one of the Flea Markets we went to and I still have them today.
You can always find lots of T – shirts.
There’s women’s hand bags and purses. But you know these are knock offs and not the real thing.
You can find knick knacks and electronics at all of the Flea Markets.
Tools can be found as well.
If you like ‘people – watching’ and strolling through the aisles of a Flea Market, I suggest you visit Paris’ Flea Markets. I guarantee you’ll find something that you like.
My sister got this antique map for a very good price. And it wasn’t hard at all getting it sent back to Houston.
I bought some pants that I liked and a few other things while walking through the booths at the Flea Markets.
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our day at the Flea Markets. We were able to travel across Paris by subway and check out all three.
I have many more photos of the Flea Markets and also of Paris and other places on my website. Check it out if you have time. I’m sure you’ll see something you like.
Also, you can ‘Like’ my Facebook page for updates as to what events and places I’m traveling to next.
I can’t believe how much they have on offer at the markets! Looks like you can buy pretty much anything!
There’s lots more than just the pictures I’m showing. I think people would be pleasantly surprised at what all you can shop for at the Flea Markets.
