It seems like every village has a couple of these original shops. No two places have the same things. This sure makes shopping alot more interesting. Funny thing is though, that when I am actually looking for something specific, it is really hard to find. Today, I really wanted some pieces of fabric. Nothing fancy or expensive, just some pieces for crafty projects for the kids. I did not need it badly enough to drive to Brignoles, a 30 minute trip, but was convinced that one of the village markets or hardware stores would have some. No, it was not to be found.
The other thing I really want is a wooden reamer. You know, the simple wooden tool used to juice lemons and limes. I can't find one. I look at every hardware and kitchen-y store I stumble upon. Someday, one will just be staring me in the face- I know it will.
