Sunday sale

Had a really good time at the sale today. It wasn't the most successful one I've done in terms of sales, but I did enjoy the ambiance and chatting to the people who came along. I thought you might like to see some of the stalls. There were some brilliant things at amazing prices. I love this lady's vintage style (above). She has lots of retro 1970s things, and displays it really well. 

There were around 30 stalls in the Hall.

An eclectic mix on Cherry's table....

I must admit to experiencing some 'stall anxiety' and even 'stall envy' at this sale. For the last couple of years, I've only done a few sales, always at the same venues where there aren't many other vintage dealers,or where people know me and my stuff. This was different, and for the first hour, it did seem that everyone was making a beeline for anywhere but me! Thankfully things got better as the day progressed. 

I sold my patchwork suitcase, which is great. Now I can make another one. 

Tiny jigsaws. 

               This stall did very well indeed (above)

Time to pack away until the next one (on November 16th at Foxtail Lilly.)

    1. Hi Maria
      Yes, there was a tea room and it was buzzing! Funny, that. I did sell two of my rosey tins, so you were right about those.
