Retail shops (2) - Two new ventures

Two new shops have started up inside the walls.  We will take further pictures as they really get under full steam as the year progresses.




L'Orangerie  is on the Grande Rue next to the taxi service of Lambaseur.  We caught a proud moment, as the signwriter laid out the stylish shopfront title by hand.




A new bridal shop has taken the premises of the former fishmonger, M Bigot, whose shop's trade name (in outline) still adorns the fascia.  The shop's location is just next to the church where the dresses and veils will help celebrate the happy day.
Have you got a new frock for an old trout?
