Saturday was a busy day too, dashing between birthday parties, but I did spot a large hand painted banner on the village hall announcing a '50p sale'. I made him do a handbrake turn and we all traipsed in.
I have no idea who or what the sale was in aid of, but there were lots of tables laid out with all manner of things, and despite it opening some two hours previously there was tonnes left - perhaps these ladies need some marketing assistance?
It was 50p to get in and everything for sale was 50p. I didn't have a cup of tea and a slice of cake, but I suspect these also would have been priced at 50p, it being the order of the day.
I have to say, I quite liked this approach. There was no haggling, no dispute over prices, no embarrassment when you pick an item up only to be told they want a tenner for it.
Here's what I got:
|A cerise leather flower brooch|
|Pretty vintage clip-ons|
|Vintage embroidered bread holder|
|Brand new 3D snowflake cookie cutter|
|Ball of ribbon wool to be used for gift wrapping|
|A diminutive picnic basket, perfect for Boris to take on his teddy bear picnic|
|Bargain of the day - a vintage card game with endless crafting opportunities|
