The small scale makes the Marche aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves a unique weekend shopping outing. The market occupies two avenues in the 14th arrondissement of Paris: av. Sangnier and BC. Georges Lafenestre. Open 7 to 2 p.m. It takes place every Saturday and Sunday of the year, holidays included. There are over 380 professional vendors hawking vintage clothing and furniture, fixtures, tableware, glassware and silverware, fabric, antique jewelry, cameras, phonographs and radios, books and old papers, coins, medals and militaria, paintings, drawings and engravings; photographs and postcards, curios, toys and folk art, religious objects, oriental and African arts. Whew! I’m a regular and it never disappoints.
