So funny I told my grandson I wanted him to call me Grammie, he heard the "mi" and calls me Mimi.
I would guess you could run your business for awhile with what you have on hand. I would go with trepidation to the brocante too.

I've been going to brocantes in my area, Lot-et-Garonne and Dordogne. I wear my mask but not many do - both dealers and customers.

I love the photos of the paper. I rarely see them where I live, although I found a document from 18th century a couple of years ago. That's the only one I own.

I don't believe hoarders sell their items, so I think you're fine!

After many many years spent hoarding things up, I’ve decided to become a minimalist so I will dispose of my stuff in my own way therefore, when I’ll no longer be, I can rest in peace by knowing that my lovely belongings, are not scattered away to wrong people or wrong places, etc etc...even because having a only child living abroad, he can’t take all of my house with him but only the most valuable things. Ones personal belonging are so dearly that it’s difficult to see them in the same way, what it’s trash for you maybe very valuable to me so, what I have, I really sweat for it, and no one either than me can know the worth of any single item! We all know only too well, that all the savings and valuable that you sacrificed a lot for, will be squandered in no time, by they people surviving us and that’s why, I don’t hoard anymore! Sorry Corey I didn’t mean to judge you but only to let you know what my point of view is! 😊

From what I read, it's not the objects that would be the problem in the brocante, but proximity to people, especially unmasked. Those marbelized books are so wonderful. How'd they do that just on the edges?

The thrill of the hunt is a big part of collecting. History, beauty, lovely things that have fallen through time into your arms. Nothing wrong with that. I support your selling and hunting. Although selling is safer for now. I still remember years ago you sleeping in a car in a cornfield with a friend, so you could be at the brocante early. I loved that story. JoY!

How could you stay away from the Brocantes? Wear a facemask, wash your hands often, never touch your face, eyes, nose, mouth, and observe social distancing. Ready, set, go!
