Paris’s flea markets offer all types of objects for all budgets. From Saturday to Monday, they enliven the gateways to Paris. Both popular and very specialized, the flea markets are veritable treasure troves for fans of designer furniture, antiques and curios of all kinds. You can go bargain hunting for anything in Paris! Strolling along the banks of the Seine, you’ll see the famous bouquinistes who offer numerous old and second-hand books, as well as engravings, postcards and other collector’s items. Bargain hunting in Paris also means combing the many second-hand sales which take place during the year. Good bargains are also to be found in the Dépôts-ventes (second-hand shops where goods are sold on commission) and in the second-hand clothes corners of major department stores.
