What fun! A jumble sale! With jumble sales, you have to be quick and decisive and ready and assertive. Otherwise you miss out on things - I just missed out on a Liberty silk scarf yesterday. Damn, writing that down smarts.
But on the upside, look at what I did score...
A pair of Penguin paperbacks, including one of my favourite books of all time, the sun-drenched My Family and Other Animals (and yes, I did already have a copy)
A Swedish biscuit jar
An Alfred Meakin bowl (love the colours and prance-y horses)
A floral plate
And a lovely copy of The Owl and The Pussycat by Edward Lear - here's my favourite illustration
So all was not lost by any means. I reminisce far more than is probably healthy about the jumble sales I used to go to as a teenager. Halcyon days, oh yes.
And do check out the song Jumble Sailing by Clearlake.
