Well maybe not perfect, but practice certainly helps if you are standing at a fair that you haven’t done before, so this was my job on Monday. I decided to try and cut down on props so have used the back of the van as a table rather than some where for the staff to sit!…….Tuesday after a 3am start and a 1 3/4 hour drive we arrived at Kempton, Sunbury on Thames.
After unloading quickly my lovely salesman was ready to go…..
What is handy is that as trading starts at 6.30am it is mostly finished by lunchtime, which means that our M3/M25/A40….journey home is not at 5-6pm.
folded on this rail is the most beautiful linen cover, single bed size or double bed top, or large table, it is hand embroidered with beautifully faded styalised flowers and birds in silk, probably by a memsahib in turn of the century India, and handed down through the family.
the WW1 campaign bed caused much interest but alas came home, at one point I thought that it may have been off to Japan!
