Antique Hunting
There is a fantastic and atmospheric market held every second Sunday of the month in the streets around the Cathedral in Limoges that boasts all sorts of antiques and bric-a-brac. There is a massive variety of furniture, chandeliers, porcelain, linen, toys, farm tools, pictures, stamps, postcards, books and other mysterious objects on sale here. You may fall in love with something, or you may just enjoy the ambience. Do negotiate the price if you can, and if you can't, you can always visit one of the many brocante or trocante outlets in the area to see if you can do better.

There are plenty of smaller local brocante markets and vide grenier (attic clearance) that are often worth a look; just pop into the Tourist office to get the local list, or ask us.

Trocs are always worth a look, and sell everything from the most dreadful junk to lovely 'undiscovered' antiques and objets d'art. It's up to you to keep your eyes peeled!

There is also a specialist book market in Limoges.

If you are interested in browsing for antique bargains (and we think there are some to be had judging from the amount of British dealers buying stock here), please let us know and we can point you in the right direction for the best!
