I have been following Messy Nessy Chic for over 2 years now, but since I finally am here in France it makes much more sense to go back to it time and again for some serious advice from where to go about for food to everything else under the sun. Anyway, this one article on Brunch in the Paris Puces that she’d posted got me to overlook the food part of it because antiques have always been of interest to me. Whether or not I buy it is secondary. Anyway so for the thrill of it we decided to experience the grandeur of this largest antique market which is certainly a gold mine for those of you who like me dig at vintage stuff.
If you’re in Paris I’d recommend that you do walk through the maze of streets, window-shop or even buy a few knick-knacks if you’d like! What you should know is that the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen located in the north Paris covers 7 hectares of area and is home to 14 markets of which some are indoors and some housed outdoors: Antica, Biron, Cambo, Dauphine, Django Reinhardt, Jules Vallès, le Passage, Malassis, Malik, l’Entrepôt, Paul Bert Serpette, des Rues, L’Usine & Lécuyer and Vernaison.
I clicked a plenty of photographs at Marché Dauphine of which I’m posting a few!
Did you by any chance explore the market on your own? I’d love to know!
