Partager the Grand Braderies of Fall

Brocante 14th arrondisement Rue de Maine

La Rentree is the signal for everyone to clean out their closets, and put it on the streets along side the professional sellers during the city's grand braderies (discount sales), vide-greniers and brocantes.  There are several large brocantes and vide-greniers (empty the attic) scheduled for this month.  The largest is in LIlle, La Grande Braderie de LIlle, the 4 and 5 of September, located a bit north of Paris.  This is one of the biggest puces in Europe, covering hundreds of kilometers.  Everyone comes to have a good time and eat moules-frites (mussels and french fires).   But, if you don't have the time to travel to Lille, or you don't like moules-frites, try next weekend's brocante, 11 and 12 Sept., at St. Sulpice in the 6e; and La Bourse the weekend of the 18 and 19, September in the 2e.  You are bound to find that special something for yourself!  

I will be looking for you there!
PS Take a look at Chez Loulou for some really nice looking moules-frites!
