This event runs from Thursday to Sunday, June 14-24. It involves around 100 antiques dealers stalling out for 10 days in front of the church.

Tapestries, period furniture, linens and sculpture from the 14th to the 20th centuries are on offer and quite a few of the stallholders who stand at this brocante exhibit solely at three fairs: St Sulpice, Paris’ prestigious biannual Foire de Chatou and the antiquités brocante held at the Château de Vincennes, east of Paris.

Such dealers include Claudie Ferre, whose speciality is vintage lighting and ceramics.

The St Sulpice brocante is organised by JGO (Joel Garcia Organisation) and runs from 11am-8pm, with St Sulpice and Odéon being the nearest Metros.

Art lovers can also take in a contemporary art fair in the Place Sulpice on Monday and Tuesday, June 25-26, also run by JGO.
