They had the coffee on and various brioche etc. The tea making was somewhat randome !! what is it the French don't understand about boiling water for tea ?
Anyway our lovely hostess went down the road to the Bakery and got our lunch bagettes and we were soon ferretting around amongs all our fellow stall holders stock.
They are mostly makers and quilters with about 3 or four textile dealers.
They really like our English lace and linens and buttons so that is what we mostly take , we need room in the car for all our purchases so it was all condensed into two rows of bags and boxes but it was enough to have a good day.
These Dressmakers Flea markets seem to becoming as popular in France as our Rag markets in England and can be found in the " Orange Book "
|This stall holder was carefully cutting out beaded applique from a damaged piece , it was surprisingly effective|
We met our Hostesses for the one further North we are doing end of April and were greeted like old friends
We got home before it was serious and could enjoy this scene in Tick and Nick's cosy kitchen over one of Ticky's memorable meals , feeling well pleased with our day and some nice fresh stock too
