If you’ve ever been to Paris for a period of time, there’s a good chance you’ve been browsing round the flea markets, particularly the market at Clignancourt, which is a vintage collector’s dream. There’s everything from expensive antique furniture to stalls selling piles of vintage clothing, with the best bargains to be had if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty.
And there’s the quirky collectable shops – like Les porte-cles, which specialises in French advertising keyrings of the sixties and seventies. There’s hundreds to choose from – with a select few available to browse and buy online. I love this Concorde keyring, but less so by the price – 300 Euros. But don’t despair, there’s many others available with equally eye-catching designs, with prices starting from just 3 Euros.
You’ll find the store at the Porte de Clignancourt market, which is open all day every Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
