No not me!!!!
I had been looking forward to this antiques fair for about 10 days, ever since I had seen the signs for it. We had last been the first year we were here, and had seen loads of lovely things including some vintage, crystal champagne glasses (drooled over by me) and a 12-seater dining table and chairs (drooled over by OH), neither of which we bought, as most of our belongings were still in boxes and we were still cooking on a camping gas stove. Our hopes for this years fair were quite high, as the house is finished (bar plastering the chimney breast) and we were in the mood to treat ourselves. OH had some money for his birthday last week and it was burning a hole in his wallet.
Well, we crossed the palm of a grumpy French woman with 3 euros each and entered the grand marquee. We walked around nodding knowledgeably and pointing at things, picked up a couple of bits and bobs, and hurried away from other stalls. Then after spending 15 minutes there seeing everything we left empty handed. This all sounds spookily like the outing to the Christmas faire in Le Dorat in December.
To be sure there were some lovely things, and to be sure there were some lovely prices to go with them. A wardrobe not unlike one of ours was going for 5,000 euros! A very pretty set of glasses for 180 euros. No wonder we made a hasty exit!
The prices were ridiculous, I can't believe that anyone sold very much. There is a plant fair on at the end of this month, I shall probably go 3rd time lucky and all that.
