The Association

The Association of Brocanteurs and Non Sedentary Fripiers of Strasbourg (ABFNS)

Association of local law, the Association of Brocanteurs and Fripiers Non Sedentary of Strasbourg (ABFNS) works for the representation and defense of the rights and collective interests of professionals in the antique-brocante. It organizes 6 markets per year, in the open air (place Broglie in Strasbourg), bringing together antique dealers and second-hand dealers from here and elsewhere.

The Association also participates in all projects and actions driven by organizations or structures that participate in the influence of the antique-brocante, ensures to observe the needs of professionals and to reflect on their problems while the all-digital disrupts the practices.

The ABFNS has at heart the international influence of the city of Strasbourg and its heritage. Our events bring together a large number of visitors from all over the world, giving the European capital a high profile at a time when more and more consumers are becoming passionate about antique objects!

The Association also pays particular attention to the attractiveness of its markets: exceptional pieces and other rarities rub shoulders with small affordable treasures. It’s possible to treat yourself to a little beauty for as little as 20 euros!

The SNCAO-GA label

Our “Brocante and Design European Markets of Broglie” have, in 2013, obtained the label “France-Europe-Antique-Quality” given by the National Union of Trade in Antiques and Secondhand and Modern and Contemporary Art Galleries (SNCAO-GA) in the category “Permanent Market”. We were the first antiques market in France to be awarded the label!

This label aims to distinguish the organizer and his exhibitors who have known together by their rigorous choices to expose a quality merchandise and thus protect the profession.

This quality label meets six criteria:

  • The authenticity of the goods
  • The expertise of the professional
  • The traceability of the object
  • The respect of the administrative regulations
  • The notoriety and the animation of the village or the market

The visitors browsing our aisles are thus certain of the quality of the objects presented by the professionals.
