What a difference a day makes. Thank goodness we had a second chance because the weather was fantastic today. I was up at 6.30 this morning, getting ready, making the sandwiches, washing the grapes, and making up a bottle of diluted juice. Because our spaces weren't allocated I wanted to get down there early to make sure that we got a good pitch. I wanted to sell from all four sides so an end of line pitch was ideal.
The four tables fitted in the space perfectly, with room for us to stand, or sit, in the middle. Janet brought her gazebo, which actually wasn't needed to keep the rain off us, because it didn't rain. But it was very useful to keep the sun off us so we weren't burnt to a crisp. There was a slight, but welcome breeze when the clouds came over, so I anchored the gazebo to the ground with ratchet straps, and used a couple of straps to tie one side to the pub sign.
The ladies from the W I, sitting in the shade of a tree, selling their mouth watering cakes.
The scooter enthusiasts were keen to show off their much loved pride and joy.
We are very pleased with the takings, I've just had a call from Janet with the good news. Everything we sold was donated, and a lot of it was what I found in the house clearance skip. Well worth the effort to dive in and remove them, and bring them home to be sorted, washed, cleaned, and polished.
It was a quick home made ready meal of veggie stew in the microwave for me tonight, couldn't be bothered to cook. I don't know how it went in the church today, I was too busy to go and have a look. I am going in the morning to remove my things, before I go to craft club.
Hope you had a nice weekend. Catch you tomorrow. Toodle pip.
