Located on the main road connecting Plouharnel to Erdeven, less than two miles away from the beautiful white-sand beach of Sainte Barbe and Carnac’s megalithic stones, the Broc-ant-stock flea market has no equivalent in South Brittany not even maybe in the rest of the country.
Despite the fact that this massive open-air flea market is located on one side of a roundabout in the middle of a departmental road, which makes it really hard to miss, it somehow inexplicably remained until today a well kept secret in the region, few besides locals seem to be aware of.
Covering a 2500 m2 grassy area dotted with 11 large marquees set in a circle, Broc-ant-stock feature a truly exciting selection of items, as one can find in a French flea market worthy of its name.
From antique glassware and lighting, to silverware, crockery, farming tools, antique books, nautical antiques, vintage magazines, embroidery, French linen, old stitching threads, Scandinavian furniture, chesterfield sofas, buffets, coffee tables, vintage advertising posters, old cameras and lenses, traditional Breton clothing, old military costumes, and many other vintage and industrial products, the selection of items on display at Broc-ant-stock is nothing short of overwhelming. A visit to this brocante will almost never disappoint and often find its conclusion with the purchase of one or more unusual items.
Besides the variety of its merchandises, its rather affordable prices (25€ for a 1960s Czech train station clock, 100€ for a set of 1970s Scandinavian nesting tables, 5€ for a 1930s hand-painted dish, 5€ for a 1950s formica chair in almost mint condition), and daily arrivals, there’s something more that makes Broc-ant-stock a truly unmissable venue to shop for antiques and unusual items: this flea market operates almost round the clock seven days a week, from June to September. And because Broc-ant-stock closes its doors as late as 19:00, this makes it the perfect last stop for beachgoers heading back home.
If you’re a die-hard fan of all-things-vintage, it’s well worth paying Broc-ant-stock flea market a visit. You can easily whittle away hours rummaging through lost and found wares, salvaged goods and retro keepsakes. The icing on the cake? Entry is free, therefore you have even more spare money to spend on vintage bargains.
