After the cancellation of the spring edition due to Covid, here it is again the flea market from rue de Bretagne!

Director of the festival committee – in other words, the association which organizes neighborhood events – Camille Griveau describes her business model: “The turnover generated from exhibitors, thanks to the rental of locations, makes it possible to finance the events of the neighborhood such as Chinese New Year, the Bastille Day Ball or Children's Christmas at the Cirque d'Hiver. »

“Today, the flea market is a well-established meeting place in the Marais landscape,” she says: “We are happy to have perpetuated this garage sales where professional exhibitors are carefully selected. We attach great importance to the fact that we do not sell anything new and that the products offered are of quality. »

According to Camille Griveau, the success of the event is due to the “mixture of genres”, in the best sense of the term: “I like the idea that fashionistas let us enjoy the cool, designer pieces that clutter their wardrobes, but also the fact that we can buy a pitcher of water for 10 euros, a book for 50 cents or a designer sofa for 2000 euros. »

Like previous years, the flea market on rue de Bretagne takes place over three days. It brings together 300 stands (instead of the usual 400), distributed on rue de Bretagne, around the town hall of the 3rd and the Square du Temple (rue Perrée, rue Eugene-Spuller, rue Caffarelli, rue du Petit-Thouars, rue du Temple) and also rue de Picardie. Without forgetting the area reserved for children on Saturdays and Sundays in the courtyard of Paris Center Town Hall.

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.
