I have become addicted to vide greniers (attic sales). They are a great source of props for paintings and take place in the certre of villages and towns around this region of south west France instead of out in a field which is better as there is always something interesting to see. The onion pot and red teapot above were purchased for less than five euros and within a few days placed on the kitchen table where the watercolour above was painted.
