Discovered the flea markets around Popincourt: a ”square of the brokers’ where you can find everything from lamps, objects, clothes, dishes , tables, country furniture, craft and posters
Charmy and impossible to pronounce, Alasinglinglin at Rue Tornaux
Such a great shop with a lot of fun stuff.
I bought the school poster from the 60´s in the back for Cleo´s room
Around the corner there is a place called brocanterecycling where i found some great lamps and curious art works
Not to miss Atelier 154
The Atelier 154 is hidden at the back of a grassy paved alley, in the center of the 11th arrondissement. Step inside and leave the city and its plywood behind you. Stéphane Quatresous, the man in charge, takes you for a tour of the showroom. He’s the one who works the metal, the uncut wood and knows industrial furniture by heart: large metal tables and shelves just out of ancient factories, old schoolhouse chairs. LOVE!
Next trip I will book over the weekend so there will be a trip to the
most famous flea market in Paris at Porte de Clignancourt, officially called Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, but known to everyone as Les Puces (The Fleas). It covers seven hectares and is the largest antique market in the world, here I´m sure I will find a lot of the things i need for the new house!!
