At one such Charente event I bought a pair of candle lights. I had never seen the likes before, liked them and haggled the price down to €25.
As the lights were heavy and my car was parked some distance away, I agreed with the vendor I should leave the items there to be collected later.
Three hours later, the vendors had disappeared – along with my purchases. If a similar situation arises again, I would rather miss out on a good find.
