Les Puces de Saint-Ouen

As I am looking for a new lounge chair to curl up in and have my morning coffee and read the paper (read: Vogue). I decided to go and have a look at the most famous flea market in Paris, Les Puces de Saint-Ouen. My mom always used to drag us (me, my sister and dad) to brocantes around France. She still does, but now I go with her voluntarily. Brocantes/Antique markets are the best places to find the most beautiful pieces of furniture, cutlery and basically everything you can imagine. So while I was in Paris I wanted to check out Les Puces.

The market is enormous, so if you go there make sure you have enough time. Although I didn’t find the perfect chair there, it was wonderful to walk around all the little antique boutiques. The vendors have permanent stalls which are all lined up in the little alleys of the market. Most things are still quite expensive, not comparable with a brocante in the country side of France, it is still Paris!

Since it was an early January Sunday, it was still very cold despite that the sun was shining. So I decided to move from coffee place to lunch place to keep warm. I had a quick lunch in the midst of the market at Les Gastropodes and coffee in the sun at La Buvette. Check out these nice places when you are at the market!
