The First Vintage Jumble Sale


You saw it here!


Pictures taken on the day of the first Vintage Jumble Sale in Rangeworthy, near Bristol.
The brainchild of Jayne and Michele (aka The Vintage and Handmade gals!)


The tables were groaning with treasures...


 Prices were soooooo reasonable...


 It was just like stepping back in time to the heady days of my teens when there were plenty of these events on a Saturday......




 Not only was there a fantastic atmosphere,, it was a great opportunity to chat to old friends and make friends with quite a few new ones. Watch this space for the date of the next event as I am sure there has to be another one... once the residents of Rangeworthy have recovered from the "Vintage invasion".

My word Lizzie.. when did you get time to post this? It was a great day and so good to catch up with everyone again and see some of our loyal punters coming through the door. Still plenty of jumble left over for another one methinks!
