My travel city guide - Les puces

Description Le marché aux puces de Saint-Ouen, literally “the fleas market” in english (which is funny) is the most concentrated second-hand shop in the world and the fourth attraction in France with more than 5 million visitors every year. This is an original experiment, an unusual walk and a bonanza for vintage pieces and antiquities lovers. But not only… Each stand is full of objects of all kinds : old vinyls, prints, toys, posters, books, photographs and vintage or trendy clothes. A simple walk can quickly give way to a shopping session.
