If you love antiques, you just have to come to visit Uzès and the surrounding area. Antiques Uzès – two words that just seem to go together. While antique markets abound in the south of France and once the weather gets nice, you will find many smaller brocantes & vide greniers in various cities. Put it this way, once Easter rolls in, the season has officially kicked off and everybody is in busy mode.
From the International antique fair in Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and the Barjac both over Easter with Barjac giving you a second go at it in August, and Uzès weekly Sunday flea market, you could really find some treasures.
I love attending brocantes and antique sales even if I am not always in the market for anything in particular. It is just lovely to stroll about and sometimes I will spoil myself with a new acquisition. Lucky for us we have some new neighbors at the cooking school who is in the business. They have about 250m2 of space to display their antiques and treasures. This is really something to behold. A great way for Antique lovers to quench their thirst in between antique fairs. Welcome to Bazar BizArt (a little play on words and pronunciation that means the bizarre bazar). This is how they describe their collection:
“Le Bazar BIz’Art vous propose de la brocante variée voir avariée collectionneur, amoureux des belles choses parfois un peu etranges et du retro rigolo” – The bizarre bazar proposes a bric-a-brac from a collecteur and lover of beautiful things sometimes a little weird and some amusingly retro.
Their collection fits perfectly into the setting next to the Musée 1900.
Here’s a little glimpse into this paradise:
