[blank]Well it’s hard to believe that the tour is already over, the four days just flew by!
Sunday got off to a bright start as we drove to a small market town to buy some provisions for the day and soak up a Sunday morning provincial French atmosphere. Only 5 or 6 vendors at the little farmers market, each selling their home produced fruit, vegetables cheese and flowers.[blank]
[blank] Ten minutes later we were at Franck and Cécile’s home for the lesson in French cuisine, followed by lunch and an enjoyable browse around their brocante store.[blank]
[blank]The afternoon saw us at the last brocante store and then back to the château to share supper and finish packing![blank]
[blank] During the four days we saw a huge and wide selection of brocante to purchase, of ideas to inspire us, and images to keep us dreaming.[blank]
Thank you to everyone who has contacted me for information on brocante shopping in 2014. I am working on some new schedules now, starting in March.
[blank]One of the biggest issues for buyers visiting France is how to get their treasure home. For next year, I’ll be proposing tours that include shared space in a container. The first opportunity will most likely be for a container delivered to the West coast of the United States, but if you would like me to organise a tour for you and some of your friends, with a container arranged for you to fill just drop me a line and I’ll tell you how it works.[blank]
[blank]I hope you have enjoyed the images from the tour, tomorrow we’ll be back to business as usual![blank]
