On our last Sunday in France, my friend and I managed to sneak off for an afternoon’s brocante-hunting.
Trundling out in the van along empty French country roads, getting a little lost.
Taking our time.
Rummaging in boxes of junk.
Browsing for as long as we liked, without a single “can we go now?” or “are you done yet?”
We bought a few bits, but to be honest, there was a lot of the sort of rubbish you might think twice about sending to the charity shop.
I didn’t stumble upon a hoard of fabulous fabrics. And Jodi didn’t find her enamel lampshades.
But she did unearth this gorgeous little pin dish, of which I was most envious.
Made by Gien, it even has a chateau on the back!
Later, she gave it to me.
Thank you Jodi, for a wonderful afternoon and a wonderful holiday.
And the perfect souvenir of fun, friendship and France.
