Trocblog: It must be Spring!

trocEvery Spring and every Fall, I write a blog to let readers know about upcoming second hand sales.   Called “trocs” or “vide greniers” these are opportunities to buy/sell used clothes, toys, accessories and more.

The first troc of the season is happening on International Women’s Day, 8 March 2014, from 10:00-13:00 at Munchkins Boutique and Cafe in Founex.   From Helen & Donna:

TOMORROW is our first second-hand Toys & Baby Accessories sale!  We already have a lot of interesting items for sale including buggies, car seats, sterilizers not to mention toys!  If you would like to be a seller and haven’t signed up yet you still can!  Just send us a message via Facebook or e-mail jonk1@bluewin.ch.

A second troc is happening at Munchkins at the end of March.
