This weekend is the annual Salon des Antiquaires in our local town. Paul and I decided to have a wander around although we knew we wouldn’t be remotely tempted to buy anything, especially at dealer prices.

The first thing to catch my eye was an oversized pair of bronze lamps. Tempting but I didn’t want the incense burner that was part of the set.
We moved on. And then I saw them. Love at first sight. A pair of vintage red leather recliner chairs. They were immaculate, and exceedingly comfy, complete with drinks holder.
The dealer wanted 2,500 euros. He mentioned a French designer. We ummed, we aahed, we ummed a bit more. And then we walked away. They might still be there tomorrow.
