Go on..go on....let me......I want it.....I want it.....

Our  nearest local small town has a once a year brocante and vide grenier and I always love it! Today was no exception with 300 plus stands of both professional brocanteurs and local townsfolk clearing out their attics, barns and shops.

 You never know what you will find and it always makes for exciting truffling.
Being so early we always manage to park in the same spot in front of this old house. I adore this building and it still stands empty year after year................



No time for peering through the fence everyone is unpacking!!!!






So much to see and to truffle through!



Look at the size of this key... almost as long as the brocanteurs van.....that must have been some chastity belt!!!
Mark.....Mark.....look.....can I have a rabbit?.....no?........go on...go on....go on...let me ...let me...no?..................................
Oh well.......can I have a duck then?...no?.....go on....let me...go on....or I`ll stomp and have a tantrum....no?
Well what about a budgie or a chicken?.......no?............go on.....let me.....just a little chicken......no?......
NO? Right then out of spite I am going to buy that huge roll of heavyweight tapestry and make you take it all the way back to the car........................

Poor Mark! He is  Monsieur le porteur, Monsieur le banquier, chequeier.....Monsieur le get me cafe and croissants.....Monsieur le chauffeur...Monsieur le "get me out of this huge cardboard box of old lace I have toppled into"...Monsieur le pack le vehicule....Monsieur le map reader....Monsieur  le reach up for high items I am too short to reach....Monsieur le walk to the cashpoint when I have spent out as usual....Monsieur le person who reminds me gently not to buy things that are too big to post................and finally Monsieur le voice of reason when I have stopped at yet another box of free kittens!!!

I have some gorgeous old treasures to list this week!!

A bientot mes belles!

  3. Sounds familiar. John does all the lugging and go getting for me too, bless 'em! Looks like Mark is humming the Steptoe tune to himself whilst ambling along!

    You make me chuckle hearty :-)

  4. Michael is the same for me apart from "Monsieur le map reader" - his geography is rubbish!
    Glad to see you up and about again!
