The small recyclerie le Bric à Broc solid’R celebrates its first year of existence. A friendly meeting open to all is planned for the afternoon of September 8 and 9, in front of this shop on the road to Beaucaire.
One year already. In the fall of 2021, the Bric à Broc solid’R was born on the road to Beaucaire and received financial assistance from the town hall. The shop sells second-hand items for the benefit of humanitarian associations, including La Goutte d’Eau, founder of this small permanent garage sale.
The profits from the sales made it possible to carry out three aid projects for Vietnamese families. Part of the proceeds was donated to the partner association Solidar’Birmanie.
A social living space
Only one year, and this permanent garage sale is well established in the neighborhood. Dany Man, president of the association, seems to know all the customers who come in. Rémi, a retiree, comes every day. “We worry when he’s not there.” Faithful to Bric à Broc since its opening, it has become “attracted to coffee”. Because many customers like to come and have a hot drink and news from the neighbors.
Edmee Roussel, an elegant elderly lady enters with her dog Nala and searches the clothing corner: “I took all my coats here.” Jeremy, a young man with a helmet, often comes to buy stuffed animals to decorate his scooter. It is not only the treasures at low prices that delight this heterogeneous clientele. The moments of conviviality, in a “pleasant and friendly” place are greatly appreciated.
“We do a lot of socializing” entrusts Lionel, treasurer of the drop of water. A role that the volunteers did not expect when they moved in a year ago.
