Week 32 2016


So, what's the difference between a brocante, a vide grenier, a marche de puce and a vide placard/chambre/maison?  I'm not really sure any more!  In theory, a brocante should be more of an antiques and collectables sale, a vide grenier is an attic clearance and a marche de puce is a flea market.  Vide placard/chambre/maison/garage/cave.... is a chance to empty anything and everything from wherever.  Oh yes, and don't forget a Foire au Tout!  That really is everything and anything goes!

Whichever it is, I love a good rummage and you never know when you'll find that something that you never knew you really needed!  There's a good one on in Gensac this weekend... so, see you there!

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a lovely time.

Best wishes,
