Second-hand shopping at thrift stores, antique shops and flea markets

For a change, why not try another way of consuming to surf the vintage trend. To find second-hand products in thrift stores in Bordeaux, original creations from recycled objects or local crafts, go to the Darwin eco-district. This former military area has been transformed into a space of creativity and innovation with eco-responsible ethics.  

If you are a lover of beautiful objects, go to the Chartrons district, a bargain hunter's paradise! You will find many second-hand and antique dealers there. It is one of the recommended visits to Bordeaux.  

Another place is emblematic of Bordeaux commerce, the Saint-Michel district. Historically, the Garonne dumped products from upstream producing regions there, making this sector very commercial and popular. It has managed to preserve this soul in its markets : the Marché des Capucins and the Marché Neuf, and in its local shops. Today, it is one of the most multicultural districts of Bordeaux, with a very lively atmosphere.
