To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk....... Thomas Edison
Junk is the ideal product... the ultimate merchandise. No sales talk necessary.....William S. Burrows
Just a couple of quotations here to sum up why I love to go to brocantes and vide greniers when we are in France. I love them, but Tim doesn't get them at all!
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago both Jean, in her blog A Very Grand Pressigny, and Antoinette in Chez Charnizay, were discussing brocantes. Antoinette mentioned a booklet giving a calendar of events in our region. It is really useful, so I bought one on Antoinette's recommendation. I also managed to pick up a copy for Jean on our recent visit, so here is a sneak preview.
So......thank you Antoinette and Jean. We went to a really good one last year at Chaumussay. In 2011 this event will take place again on August 28th.
Maybe I'll see you there?
P.S. I think William S Burrows was probably referring to a different kind of 'junk' .
