Though for many years I have tended to drive to little country villages for their jumble sales, under the illusion that this is where you get the best stuff (the road less travelled, etc), sometimes you get a good one right under your nose in town. The quarterly Methodist Church sale in Stanford Avenue turns up some interesting stuff; whilst not quite as fruitful as last time, I came back with a selection of books, some ’90s reports from Brighton’s museums and the Royal Pavilion  and an as-new vintage-style cotton duvet cover with matching pillowcases, all for less than a fiver’s outlay (50p to get in). Wandered on home via the new farmers’ market in Florence Road – worth a look, the bread stall does a nice sourdough – but decided against paying £2 (!) to get into the other jumble sale that morning at the church there as I’d had my fun and collected a nicely eclectic bagful of stuff already. Spent my spare cash on (expensive but good) bread instead.
