As different as night from day is the Vanves Flea Market. 
It sits on the south side of Paris and is much smaller
with many outdoor tables set along the sidewalks. 

In order to find the best treasures
you should be there when they open on Saturday/Sunday at 7am. 
Yes, that is early! 
In order to beat out the serious shoppers
you want to be there within the first hour, or just stay in bed.

This fellow was a bit formidable, and no, I did not buy him.
(I thought that I was going to have to pay to even take a photo!)

I will bring you back here for more stories and photos.
