Shopping in Angoulême/Champniers.....SOLDES... :-)

Prior to shopping, we thought it would be good to have some lunch first...would hate to get fatigued, and have to shorten my rummage through the sales :-)

 We dined in an lovely Chinese Restaurant, Soliel de Chine,( Angoulême, nr Champniers) we have been a few times before,  they have made some changes since we last went, great improvement.  They have a great WOK area, you just pick the meat or fish you want, and they WOK it while you wait...looked really good.

After lunch we decided to venture out to the sales, not clothes sales :-( but electrical goods... some amazing kitchen some lovely colours. The cookers were out of this world, looks and price wise, but I do believe you get what you pay for. We didn't make any purchases , but have been given some great ideas.

Another superb shop we went into was Cultura just outside Angoulême, nr Champniers. A little treasure trove, has absolutely everything CRAFT.. Arts, paints, ribbons, threads, Tapestries, cake making, Books, DVD's CD's....excellent place.

Here are a some photos, so you can appreciate the dilemma I had not to go mad and


  1. I can't imagine trying to narrow down my choices. Hope you bought some great items at great prices. We cooked stir fry today and it was delicious! So I can sort of imagine your lunch. Want to play along with Dreaming of France today? Here’s my Dreaming of France meme

  2. The food choices look extensive! I have to prepare eating lots of Chinese food for a long time cause I'm transferring to Singapore soon. I'm not a fan of the fried ones but I do really like the steamed buns and savory soup with noodles.

  3. Thanks for playing along! I thought I posted a comment but don't see it now. Great sales. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme
