Rare collectible posters and film posters are the collector’s delight at Puces de Paris Saint-Ouen.
Les Puces, a wonderful urban flea market experience in Saint Ouen, north of Paris, is a paradise for bargain hunters browsing through the different markets in search of that rare piece that will enrich their collection. Original posters, movie posters, there is a little bit of something for everyone in here but you need to take your time to look for specialty shops and chat with the stall-holders to fall upon that rare item.
Shops located on the first floor of Dauphine market offer original posters on various themes. Movie poster collectors are invited to make sure that they don’t miss stand 189, allée Gauguin: film archives which, as its name suggests, offers rare documents on the art of cinema. Old postcards, photos and movie posters of French classics are also proposed. Further down on Allée Gauguin at N° 207, you will find sumptuous original posters of the French airmail service, Air France posters or the first editions of the posters of the Monaco Grand Prix. A collection of vintage posters, a collector’s dream, some original and rare posters can reach huge sums of money ! Finally, do not leave Dauphine market without taking a look at the large bookstore at stand N°215 and the nearby smaller comic bookstore at stand N° 241. You might find posters here in addition to the numerous comics and the Tintin figurines on show.
Dauphine market does not showcase all vintage posters; you must browse through most of the flea markets to find that rare item. For example a rendezvous with Stephane Aunon and his fine collections of film posters awaits you at his stand 106, allée 2 in Jules Vallés market. Do not forget to drop into the bookstore Librairie de L’Avenue located at 31 Rue Lecuyer, you will find, among others things, prints and posters. Librairie de L’Avenue is open every day unlike the flea market stalls. Take a look at what this bookstore offers on www.librairie-avenue.com
