MFO Paris Series: Flea Market Finds Part 3 of 3

If you're just looking for unique, inexpensive pasalubong, there's plenty of that at the Porte de Vanves Flea Market too.

There's a stall that sells vintage paper bags and shop packaging for inspiration.

A stall that sells vintage toys. Those toy cars and soldiers are cast from metal, and not plastic. Plenty of old toiletries packaging behind too.

Pretty magnifying glasses.

Supposedly Wedgwood overruns. I compared it to Wedgwood pieces my Mom handed down to me, and these are less fine than what I have. So it's quite possible that these are the ones that did not make it to the stores.

Love these French terrariums. Makes me want to buy them all. I didn't though. I'm still sad about it.

That stall selling the toile bedcovers? They had these vintage dresses and nightgowns too. So pretty.

Sharing with you some of the items I brought home with me. Not a lot, but I am quite happy with my haul as they sure sparked joy at first sight!

My wish is that I get to visit Porte de Vanves at least twice a year, heehee. To be honest, despite the tragic incidents that have happened in Paris this year, I feel no qualms about going back. Paris will triumph over terror. We should think that way too.

How to get there: We took an Uber car both ways, but you may also take line 13 of the Paris M├ętro and alight at Porte de Vanves, or simply take the bus.
