Old-school flea market for amazing bargains.
A great plan for Sunday
Bargain-hunters and antiques aficionados, heads up. Les Puces du Canal in the Villeurbane neighbourhood is the real deal. It's open Thursdays and weekends, but the best time to go is early Sunday morning (we're talking 7 am), to beat the crowds. It's more than four square kilometres (1½ sq. miles) crammed with all manner of vintage furniture, ceramics, lamps in all sorts of styles, kitchenware, and a cornucopia of items that will take you back to at least the 1960s. There are also spots to have a rest and a cup of coffee or glass of wine. So get hopping, the fleas await!
