Looking for stuff somebody else used until they didn't want it anymore? There are three levels of sales events for this.
The first is the Vide Grenier, literally empty the attic. When's the last time you were in your attic?
Oh, and the whole village empties their attics on the same day.
The second level up is the Brocante. This is where you find enormous pieces of furniture from France's Belle Epoque. You would never know that the average Belle Epoquet was a petit five foot two by the looking at these mahogany monsters.
Finally, for the really old and valuable stuff, there is the Antique level. The booth next door to Pierre has a lo of fancy stuff from the many King Louies. Pierre got the old part right.
