“Rare gem”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Our visit fallen on Sunday so we had chance to visit lovely and so original second hand book market held inside. There were couple of people playing chess and plenty of people browsing for books and posters. All in all atmosphere was captivating. We bough few posters for a bargain price of €5 and spend ther a bit more time than intended....

“Beautiful building”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

The old stock exchange is a beautiful building, which during the day opens up and there are a number of sellers inside. You can by second hand books (mostly French) and old toys. Most sellers don't arrive until after midday, however. It's not something you would specifically go to Lille to see, but if you're in the area it's worth a look.
