Sunday is the day when most of our village sales are held. This one wasn't in the adverts until the  last minute. I saw a poster at the supermarket. It's always a real treat to attend especially when the village is so lovely The setting too, beautiful, set on the side of a gentle undulating valley. It has lots of lovely old stone rendered cottages, a great old mill building, still with the old pulleys and original doors. The streets are narrow with an open square. There are even the old Arab style toilets. Below is a 'Tube' like mine, but this one goes. The guy said he may have a front grill which mine is missing. I am also missing a window screen. My screen is the newer non split variety. The lights seem to be the same as a 2CV of which we have. There was a list of 'charcuterie' and prices from when this little truck may have been used as a little shop.


Inside of the little truck. It has a sliding side door.Wheel arches that you can sit on  and this one like mine has the one big door to open up the back, hinged at the bottom for the cows to walk up. I think it's a Betaillier. Or if you wish sliding up large pieces of furniture. This one belongs to Roger La Brocante.

I bought a little cheese strainer from this stall. I shall photograph it later. I like the little cottage behind in traditional colours. The glass above the door and doorway in the roof is typical of the area.

I love looking in boxes on the floor, rummaging. I found a pair of  old secateurs and a copper pot stand here. A lot of lace too, unpicked from old clothes.

I have been looking for a weaving loom for sometime, mostly on ebay. I found one at the sale, boxed, never been used. A perfect starter one. I have already managed a small woven tiny rug from garden string and thick wool.
