Le Village Saint-Paul

A haven of antique stores, art galleries and artisan boutiques, the Village Saint-Paul hosts approximately 200 antique dealers selling everything from medieval pieces to 1960s pop memorabilia.

Paris is a vibrant modern city with a historic heart and many gracious old buildings. The French capital is also a fantastic place to come for those in search of antiques, with a few world-renowned flea markets like the Marché aux Puces de Saint-Ouen and the Puces de Vanves. But Paris is also famous for its antique stores busting at the seams with old collectibles.

The most famous of them is probably Le Village Saint-Paul with its covered passageways and its connecting courtyards that run parallel to the rue Saint-Paul, in Le Marais district. A haven of antique stores, art galleries, and artisan boutiques, the Village Saint-Paul hosts approximately 200 antique dealers selling everything from medieval pieces to 1960s and 1970s retro gear and pop memorabilia.

As usual with antique dealers, it is generally recommended to haggle at Le Village Saint-Paul. If you see something you like, feel free to negotiate its price and to initiate a conversation with merchants, who will usually be delighted to tell you more about their treasures. Among the other opportunities to find something fascinating and valuable, such as 17th-century trinkets is at the neighborhood’s weekend yard sales.

Le Village Saint-Paul is charmingly removed from the local hustle and bustle, but resolute in the center of it all, with its succession of narrow cobblestone streets, large old trees, and copious vines providing plenty of greenery. Soak up the beauty of the old buildings with their wooden shutters, iron balcony railings, and green shrubs creeping up their façades.

Because Le Village Saint-Paul is a self-contained area that has an old-world charm about it, it is enjoyed whether or not you are actually there to pick up antiques for bargain prices.

"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."
