Â In the summer there are brochantes all over the place. These aren’t like flea markets, or vide greniers as they are called here. These are antique markets run by professional dealers. I love poking around and always see many things I’d love to buy. I have to say that the prices seemed a little lower than last year for what ever reason.
Â Farmers used to wear these in the fields. There were many made before they started mass producing shoes and are of wood. They look uncomfortable but I guess a little mud wouldn’t hurt them.
These dolls look strangely familiar to me for some reason.
Â There are always wonderful linen things in these markets. I never buy them as I don’t think I’d use them. This nightgownÂ was tempting but I passed it by.
I have a weakness for plates and platters but I didn’t buy any.
Â This is what we ended up buying. We’ve needed one since we moved into our house. The seller actually delievered it, thank heavens. Now I have a place for dishes that I have stuffed here and there.
