14 unique finds from Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen flea market in Paris

by Ashiesh Shah Feb 10, 2017

One of the largest antique markets in the world, the Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen is a real institution in Paris. It’s truly a gold mine for antiques amateurs and with over 1,700 merchants including 1,400 antique dealers, some sections of the market feel more like a museum than a flea market. Strolling the bazaars is the perfect way to spend an afternoon, cutting through little streets and alleys, admiring the curated collections dealers have laid out.

Although there are around 14 markets here, Paul Bert and Serpette are two of my personal favourites that offer an enormous selection of furniture, prints, paintings, mirrors, antique luggage, vintage clothing, hardware, art deco furniture and hardware. Here are my 14 unique finds from my last visit.
