I finally made it to a market! and it was a holiday market! The first time I went to a holiday market was in Prague and it was pure magic... pastries, mulled cider, carols, and snow. This market, in Vouvant, had the same excitement, but a very different feel. There was a craft fair inside the Norman church while children and a herd of ponies gathered outside. There was instant coffee and crepes. Stores around town were decorated for the season. The toy shop, which was filled with handmade wooden toys, was especially impressive. I bought a bar of locally-made soap, the one that Jack did not make a face at. A big success.
