The glamour capital of the world is powered by more than just Louis Vuitton and bobo chic. Those looking to make a real impression come to the city's various pop-up markets to try on something a bit different, whether that's a jumper stitched with feathers or a brand of ethically sourced lipstick. Check out our selection of venus and events below – every so often, they open their doors to some of the best-dressed Parisians in town.


Le Marché Rétro d’Oberkampf

No dusty trinkets or grandma’s scarves here: the Marché Rétro d’Oberkampf is all elegant ’60s furniture, period jewellery and shiny baubles. It’s all beautifully presented and well-cared-for, though sometimes the selection of stalls is a little limited.

Take Me Out

It’s got the same number of inventive designers, the same mix of accessories, clothes and furniture – if Take Me Out stands out form the crowd, it’s for its air of a bonkers car boot sale. Couture stands, performance artists and unusual workshops for kids and grown-ups. Two days of hip jewellery and cupcake overload.

For • The artfully dishevelled
When • Every three months, 12noon-10pm
How much • Free-€3, depending on the venue
Where • Various locations
