Where to best “chiner” to find Bric-a-Brac Bargains in Bordeaux

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
Passage St Michel, Place St Michel

Passage St Michel, Place St Michel

  • 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”!!

 Also I once came across an amazing warehouse full of antiques and old stuff in Blaye (about an hour from Bordeaux on the Right bank and Worth a very pleasant drive through Bourg and up a small road along the Dordogne River). There is an amazing Citadelle at Blaye (and a good maison du vin – terrific whites too).  Beautiful Under-rated wine area.
Also in Chartrons Bordeaux
