This depends on what you're looking to buy. Clothes, furniture, eccentricities, etc...
I would recommend the "Puces de Saint Ouen", right outside Paris, in the area of Saint Ouen go to "rue des Rosiers" and find a docen markets with different objects that will catch your attention. Don't expect to find great places, but expect to find treasures. ;)
Oh! And don't miss having a quick coffee at "Chez Luissette" (at Marché Vernaisson), to get to experience the local ambience with live music from the old times.

Enjoy!

ps: please be aware that the market is only open during weekends and Mondays. Also try to take a taxi to it, the surroundings are a bit sketchy and you might get lost if you try to make your way by metro and walking.

Thrift shop is called frippe or friperie... perhaps you’ll find what you’re looking for at that url

There's a whole area of town called "Les Puces" that you should look into. It's several markets in the same area, and they all specialize in different kinds of items. It's worth checking out some information before you go depending on the kind of thing you're looking for since it's too large to see everything. But don't be put off by the cheap booths around the edges of the area. The best stuff is further into the area and not on the edges.

There are several lists of best shops--and I like the big flea markets too. Here is one of the best, but culture trip and others have lists as well. But the answer does not show up here if I provide links from the ones considered competitive! :-( http://parisbym.com/find-the-perfect-thrift-shop-in-paris/
