A Lovely Jumbley Day!


Saturday morning saw the sun shining & the bunting gently wafting in the breeze outside the Rangeworthy village hall in preparation for the first V&H Vintage Jumble Sale. Don't let it be said that we do things by half as we had kindly been loaned two gorgeous vintage cars by local enthusiasts to draw attention to the event & to give the visitors something to admire (besides our vintage treasures & piles of delicious WI cakes!).





Inside all was busy as 15 stallholders unpacked their wares onto their tables, caught up with old friends, made new friends, did a little pre-opening shopping (I bought a few nice treasures myself!) & grabbed a quick cup of tea before the doors opened.





It's a good thing we were ready at 11am as there was quite a crowd waiting outside when we opened up & for the first hour or two we were mobbed by eager bargain hunters! It did quieten down a little after lunch but we had a steady stream of buyers all day with some staying for quite a long time. We had visitors from as far afield as Oxford, Derbyshire, Wales & Kent!


And no wonder everyone looked so happy - there were lovely buys to be had & all at bargain prices.








The ladies of the WI were rushed off their feet serving teas & cakes (the carrot cake I indulged in was to die for!) with all monies raised going towards the annual village party for senior citizens.



A great day was had by all & Michele & I were inundated by requests to hold another, so watch this space in the autumn!

  3. It's not fair, why do I live so far away from all these lovely fairs I keep reading about. Maybe it's time I moved as there's nothing like that in the North East.....I don't think! Lucey xx

  22. I SO wanted to come, and considering I am probably nearer than anyone, I was pretty fed up when something unavoidable cropped up on Saturday morning. (And there was me with my steel toecapped boots polished and ready for action!).
