Smaller and arguably more friendly than Saint-Ouen, the market at Vanves is appreciated for its more manageable size. Some dealers swear by the mish-mash of stands at this weekend market, spread out over two avenues. This might not be the best place for furniture or antiques, but there’s much to please the casual browser, especially if you’re after a curious je ne sais quoi. Comb through the racks of Hermès scarves and flapper dresses, scour the boxes of perfume bottles and vintage toys, explore the crates of vinyls and gorgeous French linens. There are chocolate moulds here, 1950s sewing accessories there – just make sure you arrive early for the best finds.
