Creative treasures of Paris# 3. Portes de Vanves Flea Market.

An off the beaten path weekend flea market full of old Parisian treasures. More than 300 vendors set up there little shops here.The goods are displayed on tables but also people sell from blankets and there cars. It is a real local market and perfect when you are too short on time to visit the big and less friendly Les Puces de Saint-Ouen. It is also more affordable here and with some bargaining you can find your perfect Paris souvenir. I carried home a bag full of old biology insects cast in plastic, a big piece of old coral, old flowers fabrics and some block print stamps. 

Address: Portes de Vanves Flea Market
Avenue Georges Lafenestre and Avenue Marc Sangnier,
Hours: Every weekend all year long, 7am to 2pm. Entry is free.
