From The Brocante
I went to a brocante today in nearby Tonneins and brought back a couple of wonderful items... First of all, for a mere €10 (US$15), I chose an old camera with a Carl Zeiss lens (the best!), that I was told still worked - as long as I find the necessary film, and also an ancient linen nightgown (€5, or US$7.50), with my initial, M, embroidered in red. I washed the nightgown and left it to dry under Southwestern France's hot sun to make it whiter and am eager to wear it to bed tonight.
