Brocante discipline, you either have it or you don’t…

We called in to the brocante at Angles-sur-l’Anglin on Sunday. There were the usual stalls, although not as many as there are for the April event.

Tim was sorely tempted, but didn’t buy this…

However, he is carrying my 4 Euros spend. A beautiful hand painted plate, being sold by a British couple who were selling up and going home, after seven years living near Neons-sur-Creuse. Good luck to them. I shall be very pleased to find a home for their plate.

The weather was certainly more autumnal. Misty and cooler with some of the trees definitely on the turn.

Autumn has arrived in the Touraine!

    1. I think he wishes that he'd bought it!
      He was last seen investigating the price on Amazon...

      Hope you catch this...
      saw this this morning on Auntie Beeb:

      It is much better here...
      at least we do have some reception of the internet.
      Communication would now be very difficult if it all just stopped...
      all the old services would have to be set up again.
      But it would, conversly, increase employment...

  2. I have brocante discipline - his name is Nick.
    He elbows me away from the table when I start to look too closely!

    1. The answer is to leave Nick and Tim at home and to go brocanting with me! ;o))

    2. Great idea and the perfect solution.
      I don't see how Nick could object as he finds brocantes tedious sometimes.......and I could send him fishing!
      Must avoid buying any more ramekins though!

  4. I love it too. It was one of those purchases where I didn't hesitate to pay the asking price. I thought it was very fair so didn't try to bargain.

  5. I love brocantes too but can be very restrained. I usually have something specific in mind when I go. I bought a cute little table at the weekend needing a bit of TLC. Love the plate, so pretty x
