    I guess you visited a braderie to see those vintage toys? What is the difference between a braderie and a brocante? When we are in France we sometimes see brocantes advertised but if they are sales on the street or in the villages there is rarely anything as lovely as the items you are showing us here (and in your bird post too). Good finds are more often in Brocantes, as in actual shops not sales on the streets. Any advice?

      Hi! A braderie is when everybody sells his things in the street : toys and books and DVDs and clothes, whatever. Brocante sounds more vintage, antiques…

      In Paris there’s Les Puces (the fleas). Most braderies are in the North of France. Try a Website called “sabradou” (which is a pun for ” ça brade où ? “)
