And, if you’re a French flick fan, you might be excited to know that the French actress Catherine Deneuve lives in a gorgeous flat overlooking the square.  She’s often seen shopping in the neighborhood (and on more than one occasion we’ve bumped into her shopping this antiques and flea market).

The square, built in 1754 as a tranquil garden in the Latin Quarter of the 6th arrondissement of Paris, is just as lovely today as it was 250 years ago.  In fact, at the flea market (held this year from June 13 to 23) relics from the past remind us what life was like during those days of yesteryear.

Antiques Diva Paris Shopping Guide Danielle snapped a few pics while shopping the market last week and we had to share this glimpse into Paris antiquing with you!
