So how did it go?

They came and  they bought  and we are £700 better off!

We had advertised the barn/yard sale as starting at 9am but I went up to the shed at 10 to 8 to take a tray with the kettle and coffee stuff  and found a bloke poking about already and then from 8.30 on it was busy busy busy. Our elderly friend came to direct people to the car parking space and a couple of our regular campers volunteered to help too. I wanted to take pictures of the crowds
but never got a chance to go back indoors for my camera. Luckily Col had snapped a couple on Friday for his Facebook page.Above is the outside stuff all laid out for people to see. And below the barn with the

 smaller things, the books and household stuff all covered over.

I'm so glad we finished at 1pm as by then I was cream crackered! Col went up the road to take down all the signs, we cleared away the few things that were worth more than £2 into the workshop and then had lunch.  Time to clean the campsite toilets, do the eggs,  a swift bit of tidying indoors and we were ready for a potential purchaser viewing at 4pm. Phew!

We still have quite a lot of our daughters furniture here but we did sell a few bits of hers so she is also up £50. The list of useful smallholding things that are left have been emailed straight away to the newsletter editor for inclusion in the September Suffolk Smallholders Newsletter. Books have been brought back indoors and with other small workshop items will go to yet another car-boot sale in September. Col has got to deliver several things locally including the bricks which, as everyone predicted on comments on the last post, did sell easily.

All our campsite visitors came round for a look including Fran ( Bonnie Of Clyde Blog) who had been camping with husband and lovely dog all week.

Back later in the week
