i wish i could help you helena. i've been there three times myself and i must say ive managed to get lost every single time once i found this arcade with a store that sold the cuteste accesories, that was right beside the antique market. and once i got very very very far out and found a street with small shops where they sold vintage clothes - loads of ysl, dior , chanel, balmain .. and a small store filled with only burberry trenchcoats. unfortunately i had to go through the antique market and a bunch of other crap before i got there. and i couldnt find the way back and had to walk two km to get to the nearest metro


when i was there this february i didnt go to clignancourt, i went to porte des vanves instead and it was quite lovely. i dont know if you have been there yourself - if you haventi think you should check it out. i found many lovely things

Thanks Mettchen - no haven't been to porte des vanves but once went to Potre de Montreil (and it was not very good). What kind of stuff?

I think i know the street you are talking about - I think I was there last year - I too saw Balmain & YSL stuff. I remember one shop selling only vintage hats!

I wish it was eaier to navigate!

Hanne - I'll think of you when I am there....

Helena,
Unfortunately marché Malik now really sells mostly trendy ‘çheap’ clothes…This used to be different However, on the streets surrounding it (perpendicular on rue Jules Valles) there are some interesting shops- especially 2 boutiques with wonderful stock of vintage notions, buttons, lace, beads etc...I cannot really give specific tips for clothing as I usually search more for jewelry & access. however my favorite market for deals & finds is Vernaison… hth a little & enjoy! (I will be going there in 2 weeks )

thanks nr9dream - is Vernaison a shop or a market? Thats a pity about the Malik market...so do you think the vintage sellers have moved to the Vanves market or do you think Clignacourt is still good? I think I read somewhere that Clignacourt is just too overridden with tourists looking for vintage finds and that the prices are too high. Sometimes I just wonder whether all good vintage has already been plundered anyway. I used to see so much more than I do now....

Vernaison is a market within St. Ouen, partly open air- I believe connected to rue des Rosiers but it would be best to ask as it's a bit difficult to explain the location...Oh, I think clignancourt still has fantastic offering just quite expensive... I would second porte de Vanves for clothing, and even Porte de Montreuil but the key is to go *very* early for the good finds. Both these markets are more hit or miss like a true fleamarket.

well I agree on Montreuil - we always stay near Nation when we are in paris and we went there once and it wasn't very good. It seemed to be lots & lots of stalls selling things like mechanics tools, sweeties & cheap tracksuits.

Pigalle isn't that bad really. During the day its pretty much deserted, I was there a few months ago and everything was closed except McDonalds, a bakers, and the 'Erotic Supermarket'.
