Visit to Vanves Market

I had read about the flea market at Porte de Vanves in a few books, so last weekend, I jumped on a bus and headed down there with a more seasoned shopper who offered to show me the ropes.  The market was amazing, we found great older art, books and even a lot of antique cookware.  Some areas were obviously illegal, set up on sheets and ready to mobilize whenever they saw the police and other areas housed more credible vendors.  I was so overwhelmed by everything there that I didn't buy much (this is usually not my problem when shopping) so I will have to return, armed with some patience and an espresso.
