Yesterday was Preuilly sur Claise's annual brocante fair. We wrote about it last year, saying that it was an improvement over 2006. This year's was better again even though I am sure we saw some of the stuff 5 brocantes ago.
We are still amazed that people are trying to sell the upper half of action man figures and plastic toy aircraft with no wings, bundles of rusty keys (although we are led to believe by British TV that these are popular decorator items in the UK) and second hand fishing weights. A lot of the stalls are local, but there appear to be a hard core of professional brocante sellers who are at every fair in the area.
In 2006 we were here to put our deposit down and sign for the house. It all seems so long ago!
