les brocantes

Brocantes are where you can buy second hand "stuff".  Often they are one day events held in different public locations but there are also stores like this one that are open year round.  They are so much fun to go to even if you don't buy anything.  It's like a trip back in time to see old furniture, toys, kitchenware, etc. from times past.  This place has an exceptional collection of kids' pedal cars.

Here is link to some of my photos of  one day, outdoor brocantes.


  1. I can't even begin to tell you how much I would enjoy visiting here Stuart.. the French antique markets look so much more interesting than ours here in 'young' Perth.

  2. This reminds me of a rather large place here with multiple antique and vintage dealers in the same space.

  3. Where's this one located? It looks like they have lots of good "stuff" and might be worth a look-see.
