Boy did we have a great time here at Paris’s most famous flea market, known as CLIGNANCOURT. In this big ass flea you’ll find practically everything, but I was here for only one reason and that was to dig up the finest Parisian vintage threads for cheap. And guess what, I found them, a whole bunch of cool ish that got me buying an extra piece of luggage just to take them back home. But it took somewhat of a journey to find them. First, we had to find our way through the crowded beginning part of the flea which is basically all touristy souvenir stuff and cheap designer knock-offs, which could seem like eternity because of it’s long and confusing layout and congested walkways. Then we had to pass through annoying bootleggers and beggars, while avoiding local punks trying to snatch your wallet. Once we got pass all that jazz, it was smooth sailing from there and if you go a little further you’ll find tons of amazing antique shops too and don’t worry it’s definitely worth the trip (just keep some pepper spray on you just in case) lol.
Gotta love the Mickey shirt! I can dig this classic trend!
This shop here had awesome military gear and everything was dirt cheap!
Love their variations of camouflage prints, especially these pants.
All this military stuff and I just happened to wear my camo pants from Dockers. I guess it was meant to be huh!
More military threads!
This jacket below was an officer’s flight jacket from what I was told. I had to get it, plus it was kinda cropped which I thought was really cool.
This place beatnik was another cool spot. I scored this jacket to the left for 5 Euro’s, that’s equivalent to $6.28. Deal right!!!!
Good thing I had this sturdy backpack from BKI to take with me, I stored a lot of stuff in here. Plus, the red on this bag is really bold and striking, it completed the outfit.
Picking stuff out for Janine. I’m big on huge paisley prints right now.
This leopard hat was 100+ Euro. Worth it?
Thanks to BKI for making this Java Tote specifically for me and Janine. I was able to pick out the leather, interior and the recycled coffee bean sack’s (from Brooklyn Roasting Co.) which is the main component of the bag to make it as unisex as possible. The tote looks amazing and we utilized it to the fullest on this particular day. Plus, it serves as a great beach bag! Thanks Nancy!
She has a thang for leopard if you couldn’t tell…
Wait a minute, we both do!

A few things she picked out for me.
I wanted these chairs! Unfortunately by the time we got to the antique section, shops were starting to close up.
More designer digs!
