Bussiere-Poitivine Brocante

Lovely day and a good selection of stalls.  Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so I can't show you the model boats on the lake, but I can show you this picture I took in Paris in days of yore... (2007), although the ones at Bussiere-Poitivine were nothing like this...

I'd love to have a model boat like one of these, with patchwork sails!  Hopefully you will see them better if you click on the picture.

I also bought a pretty blue and white plate...

Doves plate

...with doves on...

...and an old, faded embroidery.

I'm guessing it's for use at Christmas, from the holly and the berries...

What a lovely plate. Where will you put it, I wonder!

Ooooh I so love seeing what you buy at these events! (Have I said that before? ;) Love the plate, it would look good on my dresser :)

Love the plate, any idea how old it is? You will get lots of use out of the embroidered hanger, lots of pockets.

Happy days.
