As the biggest antiques store in the whole of Bordeaux and the southwest of France, Village Notre Dame displays literally hundreds of pieces of furniture throughout the 1500-square meter (16,145-square foot) premises. Wandering around, you're sure to come across some very old pieces. Most date from the early 1900s, but some go even further back. In addition to the many bureaux, tables and chairs, you'll find countless decorative items including pottery and little clocks, and lots of curios including statuettes and vases to satisfy the collector's appetite. It's a very popular port of call on Saturdays, when the people of Bordeaux can happily dedicate their whole afternoon to discovering and admiring the antiques, which sometimes turn out to be very valuable.
