Overview

Get lost in Paris' Saint-Ouen Flea Market (Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen) without literally losing your way on this private guided tour of the city's top destination for vintage shopping. You'll discover a wealth of clothing, furniture, jewelry, art, and more across 14 different sections and more than 2,000 shops with the help of an in-the-know guide, who customizes your experience to help you make the most of the best vintage shopping in Paris. When booking, select a morning or afternoon tour time.

After meeting at your hotel or apartment within the city limits of Paris, your private vintage shopping tour begins by hopping in a taxi or on public transportation with your private guide (transportation fees are at your own expense).

When you arrive at the Saint-Ouen Flea Market, explore the various lanes and sections of the market (marché) according to your tastes and interests, from clothes, bags, and jewels to tableware, paintings, and furniture. Depending on your wishes, your guide will lead you through some of the following individual markets: Malassis, Dauphine, Vernaison, Biron, Paul Bert, Serpette, or Jules Vallès. With strong knowledge of the place and some connections with merchants, your guide can help you negotiate prices and find some of the best items. If you wish to buy large pieces such as furniture, the market offers a worldwide shipping service, which your guide can help you arrange.

During your tour, you'll also make a short stop at a traditional café to enjoy a hot beverage.

To ensure the most valuable experience, please provide as many details as possible about your shopping tastes and expectations in advance of your tour so that your guide can prepare a customized itinerary. The following three main themes are in the local tour guide's area of expertise: vintage fashion (clothing, bags, jewelry, embroidery, beads, buttons, jewels, belts, shoes); tableware (including earthenware, porcelain, silverware, and crystal); and Asian arts (including Japanese and Chinese arts). However, your guide will be pleased to work on one or two different themes of your choice, if needed.

We loved the flea market tour and our guide, Solene, was a wonderful guide. She knew the different areas of the market and with her help we were able to find some fabulous antiques at the right price. She also liaisoned on our behalf with the shipper, which was very helpful. I was sad when the tour ended. I felt like I was saying bye to a good friend! We will definitely repeat this tour on return trips to Paris.

WOW! How lucky we we to do this tour. This isn't just a market, this is the most stunning vintage and pre loved market we have ever seen - and we travel all over the world. Solena our guide was so knowledgeble, passionate and experienced. She treated us as the client and we felt like we had made an instant friend. Shopped til we dropped Treasures taken home included LV, Chanel, Kodak vintage camera with original bag, vintage Seiko watches .... Solena asked us what we wanted, took us to the best places, told us who to avoid and bargained for us. Enjoyed her company immensely and if you want to shop Parisian style - this is the one to do!

Wonderful, exciting, memorable. Our tour guide Solene, an expert in this market. She introduced us to vendors and helped us with our purchases. An experience we would have never had if we had tried to tackle this on our own. For a true French market experience this is definitely the way to go.

Amazing! Solene knows the market inside and out. I never would have been able to navigate it without her. The vendors know her and give her better prices so you will actually save money using her. It's very important to her that you find what you're looking for and she literally won't stop until you find it. She also has a genuine enthusiasm about the market and you can tell that she's having fun as well.

I had wanted to go to Saint Ouen for years, but was intimidated by not being proficient in French. Our guide, Solene, was wonderful to work with. She diligently helped me search for specific items. Shopping with her saved an enormous amount of time because she knew where to find the items I was interested in, and she was a delightful person to be with. The vendors know her and greeted her with smiles. We had a truly wonderful time, and I wouldn't hesitate to book any sort of tour with her again..
