Brocantes, Flea Markets, and other “bargain hunting”

One of my favorite things to do in Paris is to visit the small temporary flea markets that pop up around Paris. You never know what you’ll find– I’ve gotten some fun glassware and fun dishes. I’ve talked about them before, but I’m reminded again how much fun they are by David Lebovitz’s blog post today http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2014/03/paris-flea-markets-and-thrift-stores/  He has a great description of all of the various choices for doing some bargain hunting. One thing we love to use, which he talks about, is the app “Brocabrac” which you can use when you are there (it only shows the events coming in the immediate future). “75” is the prefix for any of the Parisian areas so you just put that in and it will tell you what’s happening…..
