vintage finds for a modern world: the paris flea.
the most famous flea market in Paris is the one at Porte de Clignancourt, officially called Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, but known to everyone as Les Puces, or The Fleas. and, it’s the largest antique market in the world, so it goes without saying, that it kind of helps (a lot!) to have your very own guide. i had one of the best guides ever, the lovely and charming jordan of oh happy day! who’s living with her family in paris for the year, and documenting the whole experience on her blog.
jordan has a great post on how to find the paris flea and not get lost (like a lot of people do the first trip out there!). i doubt i would have found my way around without her, or have had so much fun. here’s a few snaps of what we saw at Les Puces…and there would have been tons more, but they do not much care for photos being taken. “non! pas de photos!” but, i risked being beat with a baguette…just for you. :)
