While exploring the adorable neighbourhood around St Patern church (Église Saint-Patern) we stumbled upon this incredible second-hand book shop in Rue de la Fontaine. It’s chock-a-block with (seemingly?) precariously balanced piles of books and has the familiar musty smell of old paper. After some happy browsing we picked up a French crime novel to read on the train back home. Librarian Stéphane Roussel wished us to enjoy our reading and have a pleasant stay in Vannes. Not such an ogre after all.
