Brantôme branded items

Although a little kitch, we all occasionally like to buy a useful kitchen item branded with a memento of the stay. This shop in the narrow pedestrian street in the centre of town, rue Victor Hugo, sells all types of dishes and other items adorned with a picture of Brantôme Abbey.
