Once a month since 2001, more than 150 vendors set up stalls to sell their wares at Les Puces de Quintaou in the Basque country, halfway between Bayonne and Biarritz. Exhibitors range from consummate antique professionals to private individuals that have recently emptied out their attics, which means that this flea market truly offers something for everyone! Held near the town hall on the Quintaou esplanade in Anglet, this flea market is hard to miss when visiting the town on a market weekend, as bargain hunters flock there each month.

The vendors at Les Puces de Quintaou are well organized and split into two separate areas; one for professionals selling antiques from throughout the Southwest of France, and another for private individuals selling second hand goods. This means that serious collectors know exactly where to head to first thing in the morning, and the more casual shopper can be more relaxed in strolling around the whole area. Many of the professional vendors can be found here month after month, and there seems to be nothing that they do not know about their areas of expertise.

With such a range of vendors at Les Puces de Quintaou, there is obviously a wide range of items for sale. The area for private sellers offers anything and everything from home appliances and second-hand clothes, to toys and DVDs. The antique and vintage area displays period furniture, household linen, ceramics, silverware, crockery, vintage books, historic postcards, antique jewelry and many other curios from the 20th century.

It is free to browse around Les Puces de Quintaou, and it is easy to find with plenty of free parking too. The market is partially covered, so there is no need to check the weather forecast before planning a trip here. Within the covered area there are also toilets and stands where tired shoppers can stop for refreshments. There is really no excuse not the spend the whole day at Les Puces de Quintaou!

"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."
