Antiques sale Limoux

Quirky finds at the Salon Antiquites, Limoux

A sure sign of Spring is the proliferation of antique fêtes and vide greniers (literally, empty attics) in Languedoc in the south of southern France. I have blogged previously about buying antiques in France at auction; the fêtes and vide greniers are a far less formal means of sourcing quirky items or genuine French antiques at often very low prices. Limoux is a centre for salons antiquités (antiques fairs). Combined with lunch on the lovely old square, and perhaps even a visit to one of the Blanquette cellars, a fabulous, and perhaps even profitable day, is guaranteed.
