On Sunday we popped up the road to Sauzé-Vaussais to take a peek at the brocante and vide-grenier. A brocante is a second-hand sale and a vide grenier is like our car boot sales, but the translation is an attic sale. There were over 200 stalls selling all manner of stuff, clothes, books, kitchen wares, furniture, tools, toys, bric-a-brac etc etc. But we were on the look out for knobs for my larder, Pineau glasses for Roger and an enamel bread bin. We didn’t find any of those things but I did spend 1 whole euro on a basket with cute sunflowers on the side. Here are few of the things that caught our eye – clogs, Rogers always like them but they look so uncomfortable to me, pretty dolls ready to be hugged, look at that amazing pram and rillettes bowls.
