I am writing this post from Ampney Crucis, a small Cotswold Village of about 600 people, where I stayed for the weekend. An interesting thing I did over the weekend was to attend a jumble sale.
“A Village Jumble sale is organised monthly to support and fundraise for a cause. People donate unwanted items and these are then sold.”, my host for the weekend explains to me. As you know, I am very much interested in books and I set out on a walk to the Village Hall to see if I can find some interesting books. It was a good and short walk thanks to the unusual bright and sunny weather today.
Jumble Sales are very local and you could come across some amazing stuff which are sold at unbelievably cheap prices. I was lucky enough to find some amazing books in my first attempt.
I came across books which I wouldn’t have if I was shopping online or even in a bookstore. One positive aspect of jumble sales is that the items are put in a pile. This means that you look through books belonging to different categories and might spot something very different.
The key part of my Jumble Sale visit was finding a wonderful red book printed in 1951.
These are some of the interesting stuff I bought at the Jumble Sale. I also bought a tie and a card game and spent 3 pounds in Total. I will be back to school in a few hours. Stay tuned for my next post!
