Les Agançantes has announced the next date of its braderie chic in Paris. Taking place on March 11 and 12 in an 850m2 showroom, the event promises new and secondhand clothes, bags, shoes and accessories priced at €5 and €10. Entry is €2, and includes a free coffee.
I’ve been to this event a couple of times before, although this will be the first time it is hosted in a new, bigger venue. Be prepared to queue, and I’d advise getting there well before it opens. At these prices, the best things get snapped up very quickly.
But, be warned–as stallholders can only sell items at low prices, I wouldn’t expect many high-end brands. However, I have previously seen Claudie Pierlot, Maje, French Connection, Kenzo etc, for €10, so you never know. Usually though, the majority is H&M, Zara, Mango and the like.
Last year, the braderie chic included luxury stands where items were priced up to €30, but this isn’t a feature of the event in March. Whether luxury stands will make a comeback at later editions remains to be seen.
I’m excited to see what bargains I’ll be able to snap up–I previously bought an IKKS grey and black leopard print scarf for €8 here, and a Version Original oatmeal cashmere jumper for €10.
