What's your fancy? A new pair of shoes? A fancy frock? Or maybe you're just having a craving for some chocolate. Paris is home to some of the best shopping in the world. In addition to the grands magasins (Galeries Lafayette, Printemps, Le Bon Marché), there are thousands of boutiques catering to every whim.
Paris is also home to several famous flea markets that sell everything from the most expensive antiques to the most unique and cheap baubles. Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, located in the Porte de Clignacourt, is enormous, holding several different markets within it. Even those who know it get lost from time to time. But the treasures found here make the directional confusion worthwhile. Pick up a map, or, better yet, hire a guide. If you want something more manageable, try the flea market at Porte de Vanves. You'll find an impressive range of bric-a-brac here, and you can explore the entire market in just a few hours.
