First time at the Braderie and we thought it was great. Free to wander round, a mix of car boot collectibles and antique/vintage stalls with lots of interesting things. A great little funfair park for little ones in Lille too (not the temporary Braderie one,...More

After last years being cancelled at short notice it was great to be back in 2017. The organisers have improved the event through weeding out modern rubbish stalls and suiting areas to help the public. The reduced number of streets being used did not lead...More

After a years break, this years event was really good. Not so crowded but all local people with stalls and a few trade stalls. In previous years there was a lot of commercial rubbish being sold. We had a fantastic weekend and the security was...More
