Blink Travel: Vintage Paris

One thing I always make sure there is time for is a quick flit to one of Paris’ fabulous flea markets, or ‘marche aux puces’. My favourite has to be Porte de Vanves in the south of Paris. Its smaller, more casual and most importantly, you are more likely to find a bargain here than at the mega marche that is the far more famous Clignancourt in the north.

You can head to Vanves on Saturdays and Sundays. Its a true treasure trove of wonderful vintage paraphernalia. Ensure you are fully cashed up as you will certainly be parting with some money! In particular here, there is always exceptional vintage clothing and accessories, wonderful paintings, china and glass. Here are some shots that we hope will help share what we saw on this visit. I got slightly obsessed by all of the crazy little dolls and their wonderful outfits, but none of them made it home with me though!
