A fabulous bric-a-brac store with low prices and excellent taste, this place was a gamble by the Emmaüs Défi anti-poverty charity that is really paying off. Nearly a hundred previously unemployed people work the huge site, which is only open on Saturdays. The former market space has lost none of its character, now encompassing an area for furniture, a corner for games and books and changing rooms made out of butcher’s fridges.
The prices are adapted to the clientele, with day-to-day items and basic furniture at giveaway rates for local families and high quality vintage furniture and clothing sometimes in the hundreds of euros for the bobos. Come early to grab the best bargains and to unearth treasures, as the space is almost always empty by the end of the day.
