Every year, the first weekend in
September in Lille, northern France, is
devoted to the 'Braderie' - Europe's
biggest flea market. Basically the entire
town becomes a junk stall, where every
house owner who has anything to sell
sets out his pitch and the haggling
starts. But it's not so cheap now, and
although you can still get bargains,
many of the antiques traders (who
come from all over France) do their
best to fleece the tourists, of course.
But don't be put off - it's a very well
organised, policed and monitored
operation, with Lille packed with
upwards of 2 million plus visitors for that weekend. Entire streets, boulevards and
squares are taken over by bric-a-brac stalls, 'moules frites' are consumed by the lorry
load, and the fun has now spread to the park next to the river. This is the only picture
I managed to take that wasn't cluttered up with overlapping junk, and was free of
people as well. I won't list the things we bought, but suffice to say we managed to fill
the car up somehow. It didn't include nine old beer bottles.
