Today we visited the Brocante in  Mouriez, can’t say it was the best one we’ve ever been to and, the parking was far to far away from the actual brocante.  A little disappointed ☹️ as brocantes, unless they’re very big , just tend to be kids clothes and toys and market traders, which isn’t really the idea🤨


please be aware if you book now prices will remain the same as past 5 years.  This year we have to raise them slightly, and this will be done in the next few weeks.
