Summer in France means a lot of things in France. En masse vacations, a blissfully empty Paris, price increases (which notoriously happen during August wood bookcases
, when everyone is out of town – of course), and vide-greniers and brocantes, known elsewhere as flea markets mothers day flowers deliver
, where people sell all kinds of things.
If you’re lucky enough to take a trip to the countryside, the brocantes are amazing. But some small towns in France also have little antique shops that are always worth poking around in.
And when your other half has a station wagon craft embellishment storage, well, the possibilities are endless. (And sometimes voluminous!)
