Whether you’re visiting Cannes to participate in one of its famous festivals or taking advantage of the Côte d’Azur’s sparkling sunshine, this French Riviera city has a host of wonderful places where you can pick up a bargain. Selling everything from second-hand Chanel treats and antiques to beautiful clothing for children, here’s a list of the best Cannes flea markets and thrift stores to check out.
La Fripe Chic, in the centre of Cannes, is a fashionista’s dream, especially if you’re on a budget. They don’t have a website but use their Facebook page to communicate what they have to sell. Its loyal fan base describes the shop as a little store of treasures, where you can pick up some retro heels and matching bags or a stylish top to wear for lounging around the city’s rooftop pools. They hold braderies (seasonal sales) every so often, so you can go back for an outfit perfect for drinks on the beach.
TROC is a shop in the neighbourhood of La Bocca, a little outside the centre of Cannes, to the west of the city. It mostly sells second-hand furniture but also electrical equipment, kitchenware and other items for the home. For those staying in a long-term rental, this shop can be a useful stop.
