LES VIDE GRENIERS
The French tradition that is not to be missed is the Vide Grenier (AKA Car Boot Sale).
The idea is to empty your loft/garage, find all the old crap – I mean, valuable treasures – take it to a specific location and try to sell it to other people who want to fill their homes with old – errrrm – valuable treasures.
Just occasionally you’ll find something really interesting. And you can meet some really nice people.
