The most famous flea market in Paris is the one at Porte de Clignancourt, officially called Les Puces de Saint-Ouen, but known to everyone as Les Puces (The Fleas). It’s always fabulous, but this evening, October 10 , there is a special Annual event called “Puces & Love”. All markets will be open from 7pm – until midnight and dealers will be serving food and drinks, with live music and all kinds of entertainment. A lot of fun, and a unique, not- to- be missed experience. Laurence Jantzen has invitations for those who want to go.
