Always around 21st-22nd of September, the lovely little nearby village of Prats du Périgord holds its annual Boot Sale.
It's one of those sales where all the locals bring out their junk and sell from their front gardens; well some of them do.
As usual there were piles of old clothes, plastic toys, and cracked china. It's rare that we buy anything at Prats, but we go there anyway as it's usually the last of the year, and it was also a perfect morning.
I bought a bag of big fat Hazelnuts (mine have been useless this year), and a small Masonic box (possibly either a lady's powder box or a cufflink box).
Some of the nuts (€2) will be sown in compost, and the emerging baby trees planted out somewhere, and the box (€1) will be used to store stamps. Not a bad morning's work.
Below is the beautiful medieval church, which is right in the center of Prats du Périgord; nice eh?
The small Masonic box has proved to be solid silver, and has cleaned-up quite nicely. Not bad for €1 (80p); it looks a bit like a Masonic bicycle bell.
