Porte De Vanves:

1dhn2xMy favourite flea market.

Every Saturday and Sunday morning in a quiet corner of Paris’ 14th arrondissement Porte De Vanves transforms in to an extravaganza of trinkets.  Across 3 streets, around 200 traders display rarefied temptations like antique lace and cutlery, vintage art works, classic jewellery, retro lampshades and a seemingly endless variety of curious collectibles.  The trek from stall to stall is a manageable stroll.  Prices may vary  – but some  gentle manoeuvring can still catch you a bargain.

Be careful what you buy!

Ahhh well…here are those great moments in trinkets again, a bit slower this time.



How did I make these slideshows?

I made these slideshows using free online tools such as an animated gif maker.

Here is a helpful video from EZ texting to show you how to easily animate photos using imgflip.com


I also made the video slideshow using YouTube’s free slideshow creator.  If you want to do the same this how to guide from Microjig can help you with that.
