The 76th Foire Nationale aux Antiquites a la Brocante et aux Jambons will kick off at 10 a.m. Friday, March 7 at Chatou. The twice-yearly event is my favourite of all the French brocantes and antique fairs. Among the many exhibitors will be my friends Blandine Bavoux of Jolie Trouvaille and Julie Isore of Agape.
The brocante will continue daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. through March 16. The location near Paris is easily accessible via R.E.R. train A1 Direction Saint-Germain-en-Laye. Exit the train at Rueil-Malmaison or Chatou-Croissy and walk the short distance to the Ile de Chatou. Tickets are available at the gate.
