SUMMER MARKET GAME IN FRANCE / PTJ’S FRENCH TRIPPIN’

SUMMER MARKET GAME IN FRANCE / PTJ’S FRENCH TRIPPIN’

One of my favourite things to do on the weekend when in France is to go digging for goodness at flea markets. Even better, is when it’s summer time, and you’re in a small country town near the coast. This is where you’ll find really cheap goodies like hand painted ceramic oyster plates, home made creole food, local sausages, and all sorts of wonderful old stuff that’s usually timelessly classic. Welcome to my visual tour of the summer Brocante.
