Next week is the Vintage and Home Made Fair and I’m getting very nervous, mainly over how to set up my stall. I have only sold at the Bicycle Basket Bazaar before and we aren’t allowed the luxury of a table there, just a bike to display things around. I’ve decided to pull my craft table out and do a practice run of setting up to calm my nerves. It will also give me an idea of what and how much to take.
On Thursday my mum, stepdad, nan, granddad, Lily and I all headed to
Liverpool to visit my great grandad in his new care home. The home was really nice and he’s settled in well, cheating at cards and joking around with all of the staff. While we were in Liverpool my nan thought it best that we start clearing some things out of my great grandad’s house, as he’s now a permanent resident in the home and until his house is empty he will have to continue paying council tax. Grandad’s taken all the bits and pieces he wants around him to his new home so everything that was left was to be shared out between family members or skipped, and my nan said I may as well take anything kitsch (or quiche as she jokingly calls it) for myslf or for my stall. It felt a bit strange taking grandad’s belongings, but everyone agreed that it was better they went to my house or people who wanted them rather than in a skip.
Up in grandad’s loft we found a stack of old War Illustrated magazines and a big bag of bunting my Gaga must have made, which was then brought out for every Royal occasion. It’s now flapping in the wind drying on my washing line.
Have a lovely weekend everyone x
