What to wear to the brocante when it is raining:
Rain coat (with a hood),
Waterproof bag or cart,
Must have umbrella... and that was the one critical thing that I did not have.
But I was not alone.
Some had umbrellas, most did not.
Some had on shorts.
Some slipped and fell.
Few vendors, few buyers... and a ton of food, since the organizers of the brocante fair prepare lunch for the expected turnout... Besides tarts, fries, sandwiches, salads, the organizers also prepare a sit down full course lunch... 350 meals this year, yet only twenty or so had lunch.
The tranquil cow pasture.
The cows didn't seem to mind the rain, or mud, or the frowns of disappointed brocanteurs.
"Green Booger Bag," is what French Husband called my make-shift hat.
I called it, "Handy".
Real Brocanteurs never give up... a little rain never dampens the spirit. Though a down pour is a challenge. True die hard maddness!
My friend had a great cart,
but no jeans, and flip flops.
"Ding Dong!" is what French Husband called her.
Yet she scored the best deals of the day, lucky dog!
I scored some... and will be posting to my online shop this week.
Now, Rain Go Away!!
