Clignancourt Flea Market

26 Oct

Several years ago when we had come to Paris on vacation, we took what seemed to be a ridiculously long metro ride just to get to this sprawling flea market North of the city limits.  We went to this market again on Sunday, however this time we walked from our apartment in under 30 minutes…  It’s quite a famous market, and there is a maze like array of streets (although they are really too narrow for a car) lined with antique shops.  They sell everything from antique furniture, to old cameras.  It’s unfortunate that surrounding these little streets (and encroaching on them) is a much larger market that sells cheap knock off clothes and footwear.  Since our last visit, the antique stores are losing the battle it seems.  Here are a few pics from our adventure, and no we did not buy any Napoleonic furniture…
