Flea market Sunday

On Sunday we took a trip to the last stop of metro to explore one of the biggest flea markets in the world - Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen/Paris.

There were hundreds of different stalls, both indoor and outdoor, selling everything from 20's furniture to old records, vintage dresses and porcelain. 
I found nothing to buy but it was still exciting to browse through curious items from the previous centuries.
Atmosphere there was really nice and vendors seemed to enjoy their job and have wine&bread lunches with their colleagues. 

Nice table with a hand statue - why not Do-It-Yourself.

Would make a nice picnic set, no?

After strolling around different stalls all day long we had a market-styled lunch and met with 'local guard', buldog Caesar.

I'm definitely going back one day as I discovered later that I hadn't even seen half of the market.
