With antiques and items spread over 7000 square meters of space, the Antique Tobacco Barn can be a little overwhelming to the uninitiated, especially those who are seeking a casual browse around some odds and ends. It takes some time to figure out the layout of the goods inside this store, so be sure to spend a couple of hours at least to really get the most out of a visit to this place.

There are currently more than 75 dealers that share the trading space in the Antique Tobacco Barn, and of course each individual has his own opinion on what should be treasure and what is trash. It is this mix-up of personalities that is one of the highlights of a visit to this antiques collection, and customers are never short for conversation during a trip here. Prices tends to be just a little on the high side, but that does not mean that everything inside is unaffordable – just get ready to get rummaging for the bargains.

The historic building is a great setting for the Antique Tobacco Barn’s wares. Many many years ago, seasonal tobacco auctions were held within, and it soon grew into a house of antiques for the rest of the year. It is still growing in popularity as an antiques store, especially for those interested in historic furniture, though it also stocks glass work, ceramic ware, lamps, signs, cabinets, chests and more. Be prepared to be a little lost among the woodwork, and a patient shopper will have the most success here.

The sheer size of the Antique Tobacco Barn can not be overstated, and anyone visiting in Autumn or Winter should bear in mind that there is no easy way to heat such a vast warehouse. So bring a jumper! And shopping, of course, keeps one warm.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
