OVERSEAS RECOMMEDATIONS

And, just in case you’re headed abroad this season, don’t miss these designer favorites:

Portobello Road

Every Saturday
1,000+ vendors
Portobello Road, Notting Hill, London, UK
portobelloroad.co.uk

FYI: Madcap Cottage’s John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon offer this advice: “One of the Madcaps’ favorite haunts for prints and other odd English eccentricities. Go early to avoid the tourists and be sure to wander off the main street into the arcades.”

 

Huffington Post

Marché aux Puces de St-Ouen

Every weekend
3,000+ vendors
Avenue de la Porte de Clignancourt, 18th arr, Paris
marcheauxpuces-saintouen.com

FYI: Tastemaker and best-selling author/designer Elaine Griffin gives us her take on this must-see market: “The Mack Daddy of flea markets is unquestionably the Puces de Clignancourt just outside Paris! It has a gazillion design options at every style, every period and every price point—more than worth the plane ticket over when you’re furnishing a house or looking for a jawdropper that just makes a room. J’adore!”

Grant K Gibson agrees: “I spend hours each trip exploring the stalls of the Paris flea market…Bring measurements of your interiors and a tape measure. There are shippers to help you get your treasures home; I suggest Hedley’s.”

AND

Porte du Vanves Flea Market

Every weekend
Generally thought more manageable (size-wise) and bargain-friendly than the legendary Marché aux Puces
Avenue Marc Sangnier and avenue Georges-Lafenestre , 14th arr, Paris
pucesdevanves.fr
