The Flea Markets

As I mentioned on a previous post, I preferred the flea market at Vanves to the one at Clignancourt. This was because at Vanves, the stalls were much less formal and temporary and the prices reflected this.

My favourite stalls were ones which looked like they contained the contents of a chateau, complete with mouldy curtains. I loved the fabrics at this one. You could buy a curtain for 150 € which I thought was reasonable:

The Clignancourt stalls were permanent, more like little shops:

As an indication of Clignancourt prices, these bowls were 33 € each:

They are lovely, but not within my budget, unfortunately.
