Paris Flea Market shopping at the Vanves

I’ve shopped many a flea market in my day but the Vanves has a style all it own. Tables line two avenues in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. You will find suitcases full of ephemera, rows of silverware, antique linens, clocks, buttons, games, books, all beautifully arranged. I found the various paper items fascinating and brought a few home as they were light and easy to pack in my carry on. I wanted to stay longer and buy more but we had a plane to catch back home.
