Last Sunday was cold and windy, however, I could not resist a trip to the local Brocante at Jas des Roberts. Much of the stock that the merchants have on offer comes from clearing attics in old houses. These markets are commonly known in France as Vide-
When we first bought our small apartment about nine years ago most of our furniture was purchased at this Brocante. If you learn how to barter you can pick up some good bargains.
I love the white table and chairs, they are so typical of this area.
If you are a fan of vintage and have a good eye for a real bargain this is definitely the place to go. You will need to check carefully and watch out for the fakes.
Baskets galore. I am rarely without one of these straw
I don’t take selfies however here I managed to take one without meaning to. We have a similar mirror on the wall of our bedroom and a bedside table (like the one on right, the one on the left seems to be missing some draws).
If you are a collector of fine china. This is the place to go. I can imagine my grandmother having a set of tea and coffee cups similar to the ones above.
I spotted some quite decent sunglasses at this stall.
My friend captured a photo of me taking a photo! If I had room for it I would have been very tempted by this elegant chest.
Should I or shouldn’t I buy these earrings. They are a bit large but as they were only one euro I thought that I would give them a try. The chunky pink scarf I am wearing is a recent purchase from St.Tropez market.
