Le Monde Du Voyage, Paris

Fringe Factor: Acclaimed vintage shop Didier Ludot may attract luxe label seekers to the Right Bank, but this famed stand at the Serpette Market has lured industry insiders for over 25 years for its antique luggage and accessories, proving a worthy trek to Clignancourt.

What to Grab: Louis Vuitton Damier trunks circa 1888, 1940s Hermes Piano and Plume bags, 1960s Kelly bags and a variety of special order items such as a limited-edition pink Goyard trunk created for the 50th anniversary of the Barbie Doll.

Insider Tip: “A Birkin can mean a waiting list of five years,” says co-owner Helen Zizul, who runs the shop with her husband, Alain. “But we have ladies who buy several Hermès bags a year, and they pass their nearly new ones on to us.”

Holy Grail: A green crocodile Birkin ($35,700). Stand 15, Allée 3-Marché Serpette; 33-1-40-12-64-03; lemondeduvoyage.com.
