Vide Grenier at Bonrepos

'Empty Attics at Good Rest'! The charmingly named 'Bonrepos', which truly does mean 'good rest' had a Vide Greniers today (the literal translation is 'Empty Attics').
A Vide Greniers is pretty much like a car boot sale, although with fewer cars. For Americans, I guess it's a huge collection of garage sales.
There were a lot of 'brocante' sellers there - small sub-antique type collectables.
I only filled this much of my bag - does this mean it was an unsuccessful visit?Not at all! I felt positively like Kaari Meng at times with the things I was finding. I've no time or energy to photo them all or blog about them now, but I'll aim to give you the full report of my experience and finds tomorrow!

Hi Floss! Lovely to hear from you on my blog. Our cocker, Max, is a big old lover boy and very funny. He is actually only 2 and a half. He has a faithful offsider called Daisy, she is a spoodle (cocker/poodle). They love each other and have a lot of fun chasing & wrestling. They also harrass our postie which I am very ashamed about. Poor postie. Your blog is a breath of fresh air in my day...I love to see whats happening in your world. Hope we can become good blogger friends! x
