New garden chairs

Friends of ours participated in the annual Saint-Aignan vide-grenier (flea market) on Sunday. Ken and I volunteered to go into town at 5 a.m. to help them set up in exchange for a good look-through before the buyers showed up. We had a very good time.

Four of the new chairs on the deck. You can see the other four down in the yard on the right.

Douglas and Claire made us coffee and tartines (toast with butter and jam) and then we started hauling the sale items out as well as the tables to set everything on. We got first dibs on some nice lawn chairs, a couple of lamps, some occasional tables, and some throw rugs. All for a good price and a good time.

  10. A garden chair is a good outdoor furniture which proves itself useful when you want to spend some quality time as near to the nature as possible. They are comfortable and let you enjoy the environment near you with ease.
