Clignancourt Flea Market
There is nothing more wonderful than walking down Parisian streets and discovering new places. The Marche aux Puces which literally means, "Market of the fleas" is not just one market but twelve that have been incorporated into one long stretch of shopping haven. Browse through a selection of 3000 stalls that sell antiques to funky junk. If you don't speak French, make sure you take someone who does; for the best possible bargain.
I've been visiting the markets at Clignancourt for decades now and I always love it. From the moment you come out of the subway you're in the midst of it (though actually you're not in the official market until you walk about a block and cross under the highway overpass).
You've got 2 big groupings...
the unofficial stalls selling "new" stuff... you'll run into this stuff first... you'll find everything... I've bought bootleg CDs, superglue to fix a roller bag, T-shirts, rolling papers, radios, etc.
then into the "official" markets... some rebuilt/modern and some much older... these are the realm of antiques, old prints, oddities and collectibles... I've bought prints, glasses, walking sticks, and antique guns... and there's furniture, watches, cameras, slide rules, books, just anything imaginable.
A -TIP-: if you see it, and you want it, BUY IT THEN. You'll never find that particular stall again... I found a whole little market/street of glasswear over a decade ago... wanted to buy a couple of sets of shot/whisky glasses... but it was early in the day... said I'd come back in the afternoon... and well I've been looking for that street for a decade+ now.
