The flea markets of Paris

In Paris for a weekend I headed to the flea markets of St Ouen.  I have been there before, many years ago at which time I found several stalls with old pencils, and bought around fifty pencils.
This year I wasn't so lucky - in general there were more antiques and less junk, and I found only one stall selling pencils.  Here's what I bought

The BERGER pencils (of which more later), and Conté ALASKA were the 6 for €5 pot, all the others were 3 for €1.  In other words pretty cheap, and great to find some pencils entirely new to me.
