Candle Making...

 

During the summer months the locals come out to sell their unwanted items, their bits and pieces much like the English car boot sales. Yet unlike the UK Sunday sales, the French sit by their tables at their pitch and at 12 noon sharp, open a bottle of red wine, open their picnics and lunch.

These sweet open places are ideal to pick up cheap containers or tins and things to fill with wax and create your own candle to take home - a little souvenir of your stay here in the Charente...
