Do you love having French vintage bits and bobs all around to remind you of travels in France? Or do you just enjoy a gorgeous French rustic or provincial style to your home? Perhaps you have just a teeny addiction to brocante shopping… Oui? Yep, me too. If like me, you consider packing light for your vacances en France to squeeze in the French fabulousness found at some brocante markets, then just like moi, you are going to love this chat.

Jane Hotblack owns French vintage ware business “Vintage Etc” and sources pieces from France to sell in Australia. I love the idea of months on end seeking out vintage paintings, kitchen items, furniture or antiques. But for the professional vintage sellers, it’s not all swanning around vide-greniers in regional France. This is a serious and competitive business!

Jane gave me some great tips on where to go for the best brocante and how to get it back to your home country without breaking the bank! Whilst chatting with Jane, I could imagine visiting a brocante in the morning, having lunch somewhere in Provence in the afternoon and spending time with friends in the fading Provinçal light in the evening. Such beautiful thoughts to keep me connected to France.
