The summer Vide Greniers (boot fairs)

Information for Stallholders


Due to a reduction of their budget, the Tourist office in Jumilhac is no longer able to take reservations for the vide greniers.

As volunteers we are not able to provide telephone response 7 days per week for several months and so we have had to implement a system of booking by post for 2016.

Thank you for your understanding.

You can view  the plans for the vide greniers here :

Indisposition and consideration for others

Every year our vide greniers are fully booked well before the date itself, and quite a few people are on a waiting list for cancellations.  However, every year there are three, four and sometimes more empty stands - why ?   Because there are always a few people who have reserved a place, but cannot come on the day and who dont let us know.  As a result, the event is a bit less interesting for the public and the people on the waiting list cannot take advantage of the free spaces. 

How inconsiderate !!

We fully understand that there are circumstances beyond one's control from time to time and you have to cancel, but please let us know. videgrenier028lo
