The French have a special word for bric-à-brac bargain-hunt – to “chiner”!
The key Streets in Bordeaux to find Antiques are:
- in central town Rue Bouffard
- whole area of the Chartrons Bordeaux’s trendiest area (around the Place du marché du chartron and Rue Notre Dame) near to the quai du chartron famous for its wine merchants and Sunday market
- Otherwise more flea market in St Michel towards the Gare St Jean that has recently been renovated. Particularly the atmospheric Passage St Michel on many floors Worth the time to “chine”!!
