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.

  1. Happy Birthday to You! Lovely fabrics - look forward to seeing your makes. Hope all goes well with your radio news feature. Just read it out to a few people to practice and get some feedback. I'm sure you will do brilliantly especially as it is something you feel passionate about - that will come through in your voice when you talk about it.
