This inspiring stroll through Paris’s mythic flea market spotlights a fascinating array of influential vendors—revealing their unique wares, trade secrets, and the life-changing finds on sale there.

The Paris Flea Market has been a mecca for designers and collectors all over the world for over 150 years. A village within a village, its bustling alleyways and hidden corners are home to over two thousand stands that collectively offer a masterclass in the history of art, craft and design.
This book profiles twenty or so of the market’s key dealers, inviting readers into their worlds and revealing the hidden workings of their trade. Vibrant double-page spreads immerse readers in this little- known world. With expertise and specialties ranging from mid- century modern and Art Deco, to Memphis Milano and Louis XVI, these antique and second-hand dealers drive the market’s rich and eclectic profusion, not only preserving the history of the decorative arts, but also shaping future design trends.
At once a promenade through Paris’ most epic antique, collectibles, curiosities, fashion, and design market; an ode to upcycling and a paean to the thrill of the flea market find; this extraordinary book will inspire both weekend bargain hunters and design professionals alike.
