Journee Artisanale

Today was the annual crafts day in Le Dorat, so I thought I would open the shop...

I don't have my crafts here in France, but I had lots of brocante that I wanted to sell.

It was good to see the town busy - cars parked all down my street...

It was a lovely sunny day, and a great atmosphere of what I think summer is all about.


  1. Hi Penny,

    I hope you sold lots of things.
    It looks like it was a wonderful, beautiful kind of day. They should be treasured.


  2. So nice to see the town/village come alive with people and traffic it all adds to the atmosphere.

    Looks like you had lovely weather for it and I hope it was worth opening your shop.
