Garage Sale and Hand-Crafted Home Fair
The forecast was really quite good for today, but disappointingly - especially as it is my birthday - it dawned drizzily, dull and really quite chilly. However, my friend and I set off the for the annual garage sale in a neighbouring village, which has really gathered momentum over the years. I have never seen so many stalls and very spread about - we walked a LONG way.
As you might imagine, all sorts of the usual and unusual things for sale, but my prime search as ever, was for fabric and I picked up these pieces above for £4 - when they are washed and ironed they will hopefully reappear as some very pretty cushions.
My other great news is that I am to feature on Radio Northampton on their Drive programme on Wednesday this week just before 6 p.m. to speak for a timed 60 seconds about the Fair.
I now have to write a piece, and make sure it fits the time limit. I am really thrilled to get this publicity for the Fair, but a little nervous - so wish me luck!!!
A very busy week coming up now making final preparations - and so don't forget THE HAND-CRAFTED HOME FAIR at ALDWINCLE VILLAGE HALL, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on SATURDAY 26 MAY.
Thank you for reading.
