Today’s bootsale had lots of very interesting items, so join me for this virtual antiquing tour in France and see what I could find in this lovely old town!
"Vide grenier": Literally means "attic empty", we’d say bootsale for the UK - it’s a type of street sale where locals stall out with personal items they’d like to sell. I sometimes call them “vide gren’s” for short.
"Brocante": A thrift store, second-hand shop, usually contain many antiques but can have all sorts of items. Many bargains to be found in these!
