On Saturday, 13th April, we held our first jumble sale of 2019.
We were lucky with the weather, cold but sunny, which helped to bring the buyers.
Friday evening had been a very busy time, setting up tables and putting out the jumble ready for the early Saturday start. I’m particularly grateful to all the club members who turned up at 10:30pm to get us set up.
On Saturday, dealers were our first visitors at 8:30. They pay a premium for early entry, which helps boost our takings. At last 10:00 arrived and we were able to let the public in. It was good to see some familiar faces and there is always the opportunity for some freindly banter. Sales were brisk and, as expected, some great bargains were there for the taking. A first for this year was the cake stall, where all but two fairy cakes went to an appreciative home.
Eventually, time was up and we set to work clearing the hall. It’s always surprising to see items that one expects to sell still on the tables.
Once again, a big thank you to everyone who helped make the sale a success. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Our next jumble sale is on 26th October.
