St Lo Brocante

Roger & I drove to St Lo on Sunday to the monthly Brocante and I couldn't get over how many of the stall holders were English, selling china, silverplate & bric a brac.

I'm always on the look out for Quimper although we don't usually find much here in Normandy we usually have to drive down to Brittany before we start to uncover Q treasures.

All that we saw were a small Henriot pitcher with a petit breton decor and a large chip on the base, a petit breton double salt in the form of a pair of sabots, circa 1940's, a tea cup and saucer with scalloped edges in the ivoire corbeille design and a 1960's floral cake stand in bits.
However, the morning wasn't a complete waste of time as our friends from the Epicerie Anglaise were there and Roger bought cheddar cheese and dark chocolate digestives biscuits which put a smile on his face.

We'll miss next month's Brocante because we'll be in Hilton Head, South Carolina checking out locations for the QCI Savannah 2010 meeting with Nina & Tom Slonaker, look out for a report about our trip on my blog in April.

bonne chine.
