Lolo has landed! He arrived in Nantes on Saturday just in time to have a simple lunch at home. 

Nantes Atlantique AirportNantes, France

A fresh baguette, pate, local stone crabs and a bottle of Cassis sat on the table laid for four. A "simple, everyday lunch," shared with family and eaten with pleasure. This is how the French eat.

After lunch he visited with his mother, sister and brother-in-law before heading out for a quick look at a local dealer's warehouse. This is how an antique dealer thinks!

He didn't find much on this little outing, but now that we've given you a tiny peek into what it's like to go antique hunting in France, be sure and check back frequently to see if he does stumble upon anything you are interested in or find desirable. If so, "Let Lolo Know"and contact him at There will be much more to come over the next week!

À Bientôt!
