The Paris Diaries: Day 9 at the Paris Flea Markets in Pictures


One of my major missions while on holiday in Paris was to visit the famed Paris Flea Markets. I've read so much about them over the years in fashion books, magazines and online that I just had to see for myself. To be honest, I went with my buying face on, but I left empty handed... There are many treasures to be found, but there are also some fakers there too trying to sell questionable goods for very hefty prices. If you find yourself in Paris, whether you are hoping to buy something or not, the Paris Flea Markets are definitely worth seeing if only as a tourist attraction! It's very easy to get there by Metro. We had a great day there, but beware - it's not the most upstanding of neighborhoods so watch your wallet and definitely don't go there alone. Otherwise, you'll be fine.
