In the most perfect of combinations, the PAST Antiques Marketplace and Gateway Museum is the place to go to binge on all things historical and antique. It is possible to visit and just go to the Antiques Marketplace or the Museum, but why waste the opportunity? There is a small entry fee to visit the museum – access to the antique store is free of charge – but it is more than worth it.

An entire day can easily be spent here, and by the end of it, it is impossible not to be full of knowledge, and very difficult indeed not to fill up shopping bags at the antique store!

The staff throughout the PAST Antiques Marketplace and Gateway Museum are really welcoming and radiate enthusiasm for their subject. The guides for the museum are completely engaging and bring their subject to life for all ages. Any questions that a shopper has about anything antique is guaranteed to be answered in spades, making this a great location for fascinating conversations as well as amazing buys.

The PAST Antiques Marketplace and Gateway Museum hosts more than 90 vendors all under one roof, selling everything from furniture, vintage wares, antique jewelry, framed art, figurines, coins, decorative items and much more.

The PAST Antiques Marketplace and Gateway Museum is worth following on all their social media channels – each week they highlight a favorite vendor so it is possible to get a peek at some of the unique and bespoke pieces that are currently for sale in the store.

This can be handy, as there is a wide range of goods curated and available for purchase at this antiques store, and sometimes it is useful to have an idea of what to be looking for before entering. Otherwise, it is too easy to be distracted by so many other items you did not know you needed until you saw them.

"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."
Nicolas Martin
