This sign translates to ‘Swap meet for Champagne bottle caps’.
Yes, that’s apparently a thing.
Really? Champagne caps?
Forget stamp collecting or coin swapping; here in France, it’s all about the booze.
I’ve seen the caps at vide greniers and wondered if anyone ever buys them. Apparently, there is an interest! Who knew?
It’s apparently popular enough to warrant an advertisement on the welcome board at the entrance of La Clusaz. Yes, on the 5th of October, you too can swap all those champagne lids you’ve collected with fellow enthusiasts. I’ll see you there (no, I won’t).
