We'd got there early - it was warm and sunny, and possibly the only thing that would have improved the moment was if someone had offered to take the kids off my hands for a few hours. But they had money to spend and enough enthusiasm to get us round. Just.
It all started well. I got this new tin (tin) for a euro...
..and this old one for two.
It would appear anything goes when it comes to selling at vide greniers - it all comes out of the attic - the good the bad and the completely and utterly broken. Toy cars with no wheels, limbless teddies, things with leaky old batteries stuck in the back, cups and teapots with no handles...or spouts. And we're not talking vintage. Now I know 'one man's junk..' and all that, but there was stuff on sale I'm quite sure even the most ardent upcycler wouldn't fish out of a skip. There's usually much sifting to be done.
Probably easier to sift when you're allowed to stop occasionally. Though I did somehow manage to spot this on a walk-by. A tiny enamel coffee set for 50c.
I bought more dominos - thanks to Minibreak Mummy we now know how to play! One euro for the two vintage games; and strangely enough, both seem to have a road safety theme. But it was the style of the old pictures that appealed to me - if we don't play with them (bound to be some bits missing) I'll find another use for the cards.
And I'm not exactly sure what to do with these either, but love the appliquéd rabbits. Only a euro. One piece is napkin shape, the other is long and thin. They're old, linen and a little tatty. Someone suggested they might have been used to decorate a nursery.
One thought was lavender bags: I've been given a big bundle of dried lavender - but have a knitty plan for it. More about that very soon...
So I'd love to hear any ideas for the bunnies!
I'm linking up with Liz's magic Magpie Monday.
