Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
I have never had a car boot sale in my life. How do you know what will sell and what really should go to the dump?Šand pricing?, IonasҠold bike, how much ? I have no idea.
I have decided to label the tables at 0.50, 1, 2, 3, 5 , then I can move the stuff down a table if it doesn’t sell !!
The presidente of the vide grenier popped round earlier as I was sorting Iona and Joeӳ old toys into the 1 and 2 euro boxes and gave me a letter to sign. In France you are only allowed to take 2 vide grenier stalls a year. The organiser of the vide grenier has to collate a letter and a copy of their passport from each stall holder and send it to the prefecture (tax office) in Vannes. If you want to have more than two stalls a year this is deemed as a professional activitity and the tax man will want a cut !!
As the presidente left and I went back to my sorting, I couldn’t help but think just how much administration this would cause. There are so many Vide Greniers across France I am looking at the toy pile. I am sure there were more toys here before the presidente arrived. I think some have been squirreled back and hidden in bedrooms!!!
