Weekends don't count unless you spend them doing something completely pointless. ~Bill Watterson
Sunday morning I am meeting a couple of friends, and we are going to a Vide =empty Grenier =loft sale. You may have heard of all the wonderful bargains that can be found at a Vide Grenier. Well last year I went to one near here and I was amazed. I had seen better stuff thrown away at the local tip in the UK. That's not to say that I haven't been known to purchase a bargain at a tip, because I have.
I spotted the beautiful horn of plenty last weekend in Vitre, it is all hand carved, and it is above an Insurance shop.
Maybe I find a horn of plenty!
Well I am only going to be sociable and I will be amazed if there is anything other than rubbish. I will let you know if I spot a real bargain! Wish me luck!
