Brocante des Abbesses, Paris.

Abbesses MarketI’ve been to this lovely market at Place de la Abbesses,  but I couldn’t remember on what day anymore. Forgive me, I’m also getting older ;) Gladly the internet always helps me out. When I searched for ”flea market Abbesses” I couldn’t find a thing. ”Oh, that’s right..I know how it works in Paris”, they don’t like therms as flea markets or jumble sale. It has to be a bit more fancier than that. Then I tried vintage and by that designation, I found the real name of the market: Brocante des Abbesses. 

Such a sweet little market where you can buy secondhand stuff, vintage furniture, broken paintings… I better stop counting because it’s too much too write down. You can better see it by yourself on a Sunday or enjoy the pictures I have for you. 

Do you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask them!

Sweet dreams everyone or a really good morning ♥

  1. I recently visited this market and loved it. I bought a photo album from a kiosk run by an older couple selling hundreds of postcards. Do you often visit the market? I am from Canada and since I cannot easily go back and visit I was curious as to how well you know the market there? Do the same sellers come back each week? I would love to know more about them and where they happened to find this very unique photo album I purchased from them not too long ago. But if the sellers change all the time there is really no point. Any insight you can give would be great!
    Thank you

    • Whoops, I’m sorry for my late, late, laaaateee response. I don’t visit the market every time I’m in Paris, but I do know that the sellers inside the market hall are mostly the same. Many antique sellers are born in the area and won’t leave their spot for a moment. It’s kind of their home. But, since the market is getting more and more popular , the amount of sellers has grown. So there is always a possibility that the seller of your postcards made place for a new one, but most of them will stuck to their places. Big chance he’s still there when you visit Paris again!
