Dealers from all over France come to sell their wares along with local townsfolk who empty their barns and attics.
It is always filled with the most amazing treasures.....Who knows what you will find?
Every box has to be truffled through...............
Every table has to be scanned................
It is usually just a little easier shortly after dawn before the crowds come out!!
By 9am the road gets full to the brim................
So its head down and work your way through the crowds truffling as you go!!
This picture gives an idea of how that road stretches out before you. Who knows what delights it will hold this year?
At the end of 2 days and nights walking up and down that road truffling I have been known to say "never again" and demand to be airlifted back to the hotel!
But, the pain of the aching feet is soon forgotten once I look at my finds back at home and I can`t wait for the next one!!!
If there is a brocante in heaven I am sure it will be like this.....but perhaps without any other buyers...and me in a silk lined sedan chair carried by Johnny Depp and George Clooney in toile loincloths.....and of course everything would be free!!!!
Till next week mes belles hope you have a wonderful weekend.
