Toulouse Antique Fair

The first Friday of every month there is an outdoor antique fair in Toulouse.  Lucky for us it’s only an hours drive away.  Or better yet, catch the bus from Revel to Toulouse for 2 Euros and just enjoy the ride thru the beautiful countryside. The bus lets you off right there at the fair.

Last Friday I went to this  fair for the first time with my friend who lives in the next village. We caught the early bus at 7 AM and we’re at the fair in Toulouse by 8:15.  Right on the corner is a delicious patisserie so we got a Pain au Chocolat to have with coffee at the fair.  Many vendors were still setting up so we walked the show once, then stopped for a noisette with our Pain au Chocolat.  A noisette is small coffee (espresso size) with a dash of milk. Good fuel for circling the fair again!

Lots of interesting furniture,  linens and home decor- Antiques and things from mid-century too. And some strange costumes and uniforms.

Before hopping the bus back to our village we enjoyed the wonderful indoor market in Toulouse- Marche Victor Hugo. It has been going on since 1896! There is everything you can think of there and all displayed beautifully! I walked the market while my friend had fresh oysters and a glass of white wine. Wonderful day!
