.. As we were writing earlier, the season of brocante markets has started. And because our spring is a ‘petit cadeau’ at this time of year, it’s a must to go outside. This next coming 4 weeks have the best vide greniers of the year (in our opinion). So don’t miss out the bargains and wonderful priced secondhand stuff at:
Vide grenier Tremolat: sunday 16th of April
Vide grenier Beaumont du Perigord: monday 17th of April
Vide grenier Colombiers: monday 8th of May
The season hasn’t really started yet, but overall on Sundays you can eat your heart out with second hand stuff – crockery – silver – paintings – jewelry – stamps – kitchen aid and all that your imagination can bring on the “Vide Greniers”.
In the Dordogne region the real season starts in March. From east to west and north to south you can, usually in the weekends, find the “brocante |Flee market | Vintage source | Hipster” markets in the little villages. Sometimes you have to follow the bright yellow signs to be led to a barn or old school in the country side to find your treasures.
Be not surprised to find real old interior design stuff on a table and priced really cheap. And if the price is not to your liking, negotiated… (Even though you think your French might not be good enough, the French all talk English when they want to sell). The markets always have some food and drinks to go with your browsing through stuff. So no need to bring containers full of food and beverages.
It’s best to go in the morning. Then you have the most choice and getting closer to summer the temperatures will go steep up after 10 am.
