Marché aux puces

Flea marketing near Porte de Clignancourt was an experience. If you go, be aware that you’re entering a not so nice part of Paris. Nothing major, you just have to be a little more careful with your things. I was not that impressed with the actual market – too many Chinese knockoffs. But you can get a crepe for €2.50! The antiques in the neighboring boutiques are something to see though. After passing through the ancient furniture, mirrors, paintings, we came upon a space reminiscent of an exhibit at Centre Pompidou. In the style of Paris, you got this strange juxtaposition between ultra modern and traditional. A UFO capsule containing a kangaroo chef? Throwback to 1950s US? Why not!
