Carboot sale in Puylaroque
Les Chimères CARBOOT SALE in Puylaroque (aka 'vide grenier') :1st of May bank holiday and luckily sunshine for the first time in yonks....the shopkeepers' association held an 'open day' and carboot sale where I found a delightfully kitsch 'Betty Boop' figurine to hold Les Chimères visiting cards....OK, VERY kitsch! Resisted the temptation to buy more jewellery and settled for 10 litres of wine from winemaker friends Domaine du Merchien (who appeared on 'Wish you were here'...ALL the Brits here get to be on the box or what?)
Carboot sale in sunny (yes, at last!) Puylaroque
