Fêtes des Vignerons props sale raises CHF 250,000
A sale of the props used during the Fêtes des Vignerons in Vevey has raised a quarter of a million francs.
Thousands went to the sale in Aigle in Vaud over the weekend to pick up souvenirs from the once in a generation show. Everything from small wine glasses to model horses was snapped up by the crowd. Organizers say the sale exceeded their expectations.
The money will help balance the books. The Fêtes is expected to show a loss of CHF 16m.
