Everything you need to know about Monaco’s upcoming “vide grenier” for children

monaco vide grenier

At the end of this month, a “vide grenier” dedicated to second-hand children’s clothes and toys will be held at the Parc Princesse Antoinette in Monaco. Here’s all the information.  

A car boot sale, a yard sale, a jumble sale… All are turns of phrase for a good old clearing out of the cupboards, and that’s precisely what a vide grenier means to the French speaking population.  

On Saturday 30th September, the Mairie de Monaco will be giving everyone and anyone a chance to give a second life to items that may otherwise have ended up in landfills with a special public sale of gently used clothes and toys at the Parc Princesse Antoinette on Boulevard du Jardin Exotique.  

The event will run from 9am to 1pm and a catering kiosk will be set-up on site. Shopping can be thirsty work! 

Expect a wide range of goods suitable for newborns through to teenagers, from shoes and bags to seasonal clothing, swimwear, video games, books and toys, all at great prices to promote the Principality’s aims of a supporting a circular economy.  

All stands have now been taken – a sign of the popularity of this event – but there will be room to everyone to peruse at leisure and pick up some excellent bargains as access is free.
