Vide Grenier/Brocante season begins...

Yes it is that time of the year again, the weather is warming up, the blossom is blooming and the locals are cleaning out their attics....my favourite time of the year!

After many months of waiting, the long awaited guide to ALL vide greniers and brocantes in our area has been published by one of the local tourist offices. You can find it here.

Anyone fancy a long weekend hunting for fabulous antiques in the sunny Dordogne? If so, you know where to come.

Note an early start is required in order to get the bargains and you can even catch a lift with us if you want.

Speaking of bargains I am updating my online shop today so you may just find a few here.

Je vous souhaite à tous un mercredi belle,
