Against Bric-a-Brac?

At first glance, this ancient and well-weathered sign in the city of Cahors appears to read ‘anti-brocante’, but in fact it’s just old and bent (don’t say it) and actually reads ‘Brocante Brocante”.

So good they named it twice, presumably.

For non-francophones, a brocante is essentially a bric-à-brac shop. You know: the sort of place whose owners buy junk and sell antiques.

  1. I, for one, am not against bric-a-brac. Thanks for sharing this funny sign and for translating. My French is more than rusty. 🙂
