Vide Grenier Task List

Vide Grenier Task List

We have barely taken down the village Christmas decorations and yesterday evening a meeting was called to organise one of Reminiac’s big events of the year, the Vide Grenier (car boot sale)!

Following the success of Reminiac’s first Vide Grenier last year, there is much enthusiasm to repeat this success.

The presidente of the Vide Grenier Association started the meeting by passing round a list of tasks and inviting everyone to volunteer for a task, or two..

There then was much debate ..should we charge by the linear metre or for each car that wants to sell from their boot?, but how much do you charge a camping car?

After much debate it was agreed that the fairest way would be to charge per linear metre.
