Sunshine, fresh air and LOADS of vintage treasure! Brand and Event Manager Emily has found it all in France.
The lucky devil has been in the Loire Valley this week and couldn’t resist a trip to the world famous ‘Brocante’ sales in the region.
First up…Saint Roche! Most of the sales in the region are a mixture of professional traders and regulars joe’s pedalling their ‘old’ things and random…shall we say tatt…! This wasn’t an issue for Eagle eyed Emily who managed to get…
A 1960s sears courier ‘Avocado Green’ suitcase & an original letter press storage tray
A December 1955 edition of ‘Match’ magazine
Total: 7.50 euros!
Day 2 saw a double whammy of bargain hunting! First off – Langeais…
Two vintage deckchairs!
And a 60’s cotton blend dress…
Total = 14 euros
The second stop of the day Chateau du Loir was the largest of all 3 events! Emily carefully handpicked…
A HUGE flamingo tapestry…possibly the most kitsch, ridiculous buy of the weekend!
Total: 9 euros!
TOTAL THRIFTY TOTAL: 30.50 euros…wowza!
But there’s always the ones that got away…Emily fell in love with these mid century chairs (if only she had the space)
