Paris Biggest Flea Market Le Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen

The biggest flea market in Paris is call Clignancourt (pronounced “Clee-nyahn-cour”) and also known as Le Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen. I came here with Remy, one of the make up artist 2 years back and finally we are back again this year as this market only open on weekends which for the past few trips, we are not around or free during the weekend.

Well, Let me show you how to get to this flea market. If you are looking for old posters , stamps (yes, anyone still collect stamps now?), old furnitures, old cameras, then this is the right place to visit. First, we travel to Metro Line 4, at the end of the line called Clignancourt.

Just be aware of pickpockets ya !

    About Edwin Tan

     

    Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have. Dream is an initial point to me. It help me to look at what I really want in my life. As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
