VIde Grenier!

Some you you may recognise this village brocante. Held on the first Sunday of every month, last weekend's was one of the best so far.
After a slow start (I was there at 8.30am to beat the crowds), the sun came out as did the stall holder late-comers, and suddenly there was a plethora of books and toys and vintage linen,

though you did sometimes need to root around a fair bit of rubbish to get to the good stuff

Still, there were bargains to be had by those whose French was sufficiently proficient to haggle.
A lick of paint, a spot of polish or even a good wash was all many things needed to start a new lease of life in a new home.

Back at at the ranch rehearsals were going on for a evening of jamming at l'Espace where the accoustics are proving to be even better than anticipated.
