As I have mentioned before, villages in France are very social places, they have fetes and some have craft societies of various types. But they do love a car boot sale (Vide Grenier) which actually means ’empty your attic’, and that’s exactly what some people do.
Our Vide Grenier is usually in May, at the start of the season, and is really well attended by sellers and buyers. But this year they decided to change the date to September; as you can imagine there were lots of raised eyebrows and tutting from some committee members and villagers.
So commeth the day and the weather is wonderful, but will it be a success?
Yes, yes, yes, the stall holders turned up at the crack of dawn and the buyers weren’t far behind.

And what did I buy?
… and bathroom bits
So all in all a great day… Here’s to next year.
