Copenhagen Flea market guide

Anya Jensen6th June 2016

I love the summer season and all the fantastic flea markets around. Visiting flea markets has been a passion of mine for a long time, and now my daughters are getting involved as well. The girls tend to look for 2nd hand preloved toys, accessories, and clothes – they are already very specific in their style, and they know what works. I mainly look for props – for styling and photography. I am particularly fond of wooden boxes, old kitchen cutlery, ceramics, cool glassware, marble, brass and anything quirky and unusual. I somehow always manage to find something of interest whenever I go. I truly believe that recycling and using preloved stuff is good for the environment, and goes well with our sense of ‘being green’ and looking after the planet. In my opinion, it is also fun owning stuff that had a previous life, and I always tend to imagine where it belonged before, and who owned it.

Today I have compiled a small guide to the best flea markets in Copenhagen and the surrounding areas. These are markets I go to all the time.

MY TIPS AND ADVICE WHEN YOU ARE AT THE FLEA-MARKET:

    • Come early for the best stuff  – or just before the market closes -that is when you can bag a real bargain.
    • Bring cash / Or mobile phone for Mobile pay.
    • Remember a bag for your treasures – you’ll need something to carry all of that stuff.
    • If you find something you like, don’t be too enthusiastic – be cool and ask for a price.
    • In my opinion, it always works best if you get the seller to give his idea of price range – then you have room for bartering – if you start, you might just end up giving him way more than he anticipated.
    • If you find more than one item you like, ask for the best price for all the items.
    • Barter – the seller doesn’t want to bring anything home, so you can really grab a bargain if you try.
      REMEMBER THAT SOMEBODY’S TRASH = ANOTHER’S TREASURE – hopefully yours!!

    Such a nice guide, Anya! We definitely share the same “love” for flea markets. It’s so nice to let yourself surprise by what’s on offer. I remember the fleamarkets in Copenhagen being particularly nice with all kinds of design classics, whereas here in France you get lots of brocante-style stuff, or just overpriced junk 😉 Happy junkhunting Anya!

      Hi Judith,
      I think you are absolutely right, here we can find amazing ceramics, old designer stuff, and sometimes even furniture. I went to many flea markets in South of France, still have to make it to one in Paris. Hopefully soon.
