VIDE GRENIER - CLOTHING SALE - SEWING FLEA MARKET

On Saturday 9th March the Association Rencontres Franco-Britanniques is holding its annual VIDE GRENIER, CLOTHING SALE and SEWING FLEA MARKET at the Hall Rouchon-Mazérat in Bourganeuf. It is free to the public, starts at 10.00am and finishes at 5.00pm. The association will be running a bar and café. And there will also be a range of hot food on sale for lunch.

So, now is the chance to empty the attic and hopefully make a few euros from all those unwanted items we all have. Last year the event was very popular – we had 40 different sellers and we fully expect this year’s event to be bigger.

The stalls will be free to paid up members of the association. Otherwise we charge €2 for each 2-metre table. Participants will be able to display their goods on tables and the floor space below. There will be a small number of forms to complete to keep us within the law and we will provide those on the day.

If you would like to book a place then please contact us on 05 55 64 22 25. Both English and French are spoken.
