Five hours of fun

The Christmas Street Market turned out well. There were hundreds of people in the High Street - more than I have ever seen. 

We put a couple of tables outside our house and in the hallway and everyone seemed happy. There was lots of jokey banter. People loved seeing inside the house. And, just as important for us, many of them were kind enough to give us some of their hard earned cash in exchange for some of our vintage jumble.

Now, this is not likely to become a regular activity and is not going to compete with the likes of the antique megastores but it does show that, with a little planning and preparation, we can return a small profit. What a fun way to spend five hours!
