Bank Holiday Monday was sunny in our area and the sale was a big success. Thanks for good wishes after my last post. I arrived at the village green at 10.30am, and I didn't sit down or stop talking until 5pm! There was a huge turn out, and it was a really well organised day.
Here I am with my stall, all frocked up and ready to go, feeling slightly apprehensive. I did take a LOT of stuff. But it was really fine. I sold lots of garden items, two ottomans, a tin trunk and a wooden crate, plus plenty of china, especially jugs and cake stands.
The horse chestnut trees were in full bloom.
I am still trying hard to get rid of stuff, rather than accumulate more, but my goodness it was hard to resist the other bric a brac stalls. I am still brooding over the pile of blue and white plates and two gorgeous old jelly moulds that I left behind. I only cracked once, and that was to purchase a huge zinc dolly tub for the garden. It's for the garden, so that doesn't count, right?
