The boxes of unwanted things came out of the cupboard-under-the-stairs, went in the car on Saturday afternoon so that Sunday morning after making a flask and a snack, I could head off to the local boot sale at Stonham Barns Events Centre which is just 5 miles from me down country roads.
This is an aerial view from their website, as you can see it's not a huge boot-sale and has the added benefit of not starting too early and only charging £5 per car.
I got there just before 7am and soon unloaded. The jigsaw puzzles that I'd done over autumn and winter soon sold and someone bought a huge box of all my crafting bits all at once.
There were several things that had been in the caravan to clear as well as bits and bobs from the kitchen. I didn't bother to take many books, they don't sell well anymore.
There are two lots of people who sell at boot sales. Some go every week and charge higher prices, and then people like me who do a clear out once or twice a year and just want rid, so sell for whatever we can get.
Son and DiL and Willow popped over to have a look round ( they found a lovely little wooden chair for Willow) and to let me zoom round a
few stalls. I just found a new wash-bag for £1 and a the last big flower
pot I needed for the greenhouse - cost me £2 but still cheaper than
Just before noon it began to spit with rain and everyone started to pack up very quickly. There wasn't much rain but by the time it stopped everyone had cleared away, including me and I was home before half past twelve.
(We had really good rain later at home........ several hours of steady stuff just right for the plants)
After I'd packed my left-overs in the car I dashed across to the cake stall and bagged myself one of their delicious looking cake slices - a treat for Sunday tea.
I came home with lots of coins and a few notes so I was very pleased.(Details will be in the end-of-the-month financial round up!)
