The nearby village of Abilly has an annual 'Jam Festival' which incorporates a vide-grenier (empty your attic) and a number of other displays. We attended this for the first time last year and liked it enough to return for the 2012 event on Sunday. The weather was a little overcast after the great spell of weather we just had but it was ok for trekking around the stalls and browsing. Pauline tried to stop me from buying anything, as usual but failed - couple of nice little bargains.
These events are always a good place to bump into friends and acquaintances and today was no exception.
I liked the way they had more on the little park on the 'Ile de la Claise' by the mill this year,it is a great spot but could be missed if you stayed on the main street.
This year there seemed to be less jam stalls - or did we miss them?
The Salle de Fetes had its usual display of quality craft work...
and the oh so serious 'Jam Judges' were still on the stage from last year so that was handy!
