Â This Sunday Maurice and I went to a brochante in a village called Jouques, not too far from us. We were hoping to find a piece of furniture that we need for our dining room but this brochante-professionals selling mostly antiques-had very few things of interest. Still, it was fun to get out and explore a village new to us.
Â One of the things I collect is enamelware, mainly because it is affordable. I like to find unusual pieces which all of these are but I’m trying not to buy “stuff”, especially small stuff but save my money for furniture and rugs.
Â Old fashioned coffee grinders
Â As you can see by this closeup, this coffee grinder is made by Peugeot. They started business in this way and gradually moved up to making cars. You can buy very fancy, and expensive, pepper and salt grinders in their fancy store on the Champs Elysees in Paris.
Â I’m always drawn to these colorful spritzer bottles.
