Another weekend, another car boot sale. Well, the same venue but mostly different stock.
We were loaded up ready for action last night and in place and selling for 10am this morning. It's very civilised here in our neck of the woods, no 6am start times for car boot sales. It was thankfully much, much cooler and very pleasant to stand selling and chatting with all the lovely folk that came to the stall.
There were lots of dogs around too for Suky to bark at and for Mavis to ignore. Mavis just took to her bed after a few minutes of watching people go by and had a lovely lazy morning while Mum and Dad worked hard, but generally had fun.
The rainclouds started to roll slowly in by 2.30pm and we began tidying and packing away. Making sure the boxes were ready for next time. Now we're home and having counted the money ... a grand total of £163.50 ... and had a cup of coffee we are now awaiting the arrival of two buyers who are buying larger items off us from Facebook Marketplace.
It's all sell, sell, sell here at the moment, but jettisoning the stuff is a wonderful feeling.
I mentioned getting rid of all my old diaries the other day and after a quick check through them for any important information ... a few things which I quickly copied into my new Filofax ... they are now in the pile ready for a little bonfire.
It's a good job I did check, as stuck in one of them was this, the original disc from when we appeared on Escape to the Country a few years ago. It would have been a shame to lose the chance to watch Alan teaching people how to feed hungry Large Black piglets and the views of our lovely Oxfordshire home with the pigs in the fields.
