les puces de saint-ouen

les puces de saint-ouen is an area of paris made up of several flea markets that is simply huge. i only explored the vernaisson (antiques / bric-a-brac) section – and even that took a good few hours.

this shop in the middle of the market is called tombées du camion. they sell beads and all sorts of other interesting bits and pieces… the raddest & most creative displays i’ve seen in a while.

all photos by me, more at my flickr

    Loving seeing your pics – I lifted my camera to take a shot at one of the stalls here and was shouted at so loudly I dared not take another shot all day! (Should have asked before if I could shoot but the reaction was still rather OTT!)

      the same thing happened to me when i was taking a photo of a window display – not even at this market but just an ordinary shop in the middle of paris! i was standing outside in the street and the woman actually came out of her shop and said, NO PHOTO! sheesh.

    We’re in Amsterdam at the moment and the Dutch are quite amazing – so friendly and so chilled about me taking photos. I love it, I could move here!

    I was in this very shop on my trip to Paris in September of 2010!

    I am so impressed that you were able to take photographs at the Fleas. I tried to and got yelled at by a woman in one of the shops who actually came over to me and made me delete the photo I took of her storefront. She made me prove it was not on my camera anymore!! I tried to explain to her that I was just a blogger from the states and wanted to share my experience with friends…to no avail. For the remainder of our trip I was very careful about taking pictures of storefronts. Too careful!

    Your images of Paris make me want to go back. They are lovely!
