Doll in rocking chair at French brocanteA popular excursion on a Sunday is to visit a local Brocante (flea-market) and albeit Montreuil-Bellay was playing host this weekend we decided to ring the changes and visit the Brocante at Les Rosiers sur Loire, a picture postcard town set along the edge of the Loire river.

In her element to potter around the Brocante while Mama searched for ‘finds’ was Constance whose eagerness to touch everything did hinder somewhat !

Augustin grew bored after a short while and decided it best to assist Papa at the Boulangerie, passing the time eating freshly baked baguette and sipping orangina.
