There was a lot of excitement and anticipation at Salon du Vintage--an annual indoor market devoted to vintage clothing and 20th Century home decor.

The mild Sunday weather brought in an overwhelming crowd of young customers and the eclectic inventory kept them busy with a mix of high and low vintage clothing, accessories, furniture, and decorative items.

I was interested to see what people were buying, pick-up design tips, and explore some of the trends. I found plenty of them including collegiate preppy style clothing, sunglasses from the 60s, interesting typography, stacking chairs, muted cable knit cardigans, breezy printed summer dresses, and short leather jackets.

Even though this market has come and gone, there are so many vintage markets in Paris. So, no worries. I happen to love Les Puces du Design for vintage clothing and 20th Century antiques. The twice-yearly outdoor market opens on May 6-8.
