The final jumble sale fixture of the year, and it was a good one – even if it was not actually a jumble sale as advertised, but more of a tabletop/indoor car boot sale with stalls by individual families. At first glance, it was somewhat disappointing-looking at least for me – lots of kids’ clothes and toys – but a deeper dive-in brought up a few good finds. Glynde village, after all, does have its fair share of heavily-bearded hipster dads, artisan cake-baking mums and children in hand-knitted jumpers made to 1950s patterns. Barely-worn army boots, my size, £4, ‘cos I hear it’s going to be snowing heavily in January; little leather handbag (50p, needed stitching but since sorted); and a pair of very cool vintage ’60s woven leather shoes (for S the Lodger for Christmas – don’t tell him, anyone; have just polished them up and bought a new pair of laces, and they’re looking pretty spivvy). And two plain work-shirts for D, navy and khaki (50p each), plus a vintage Wrangler denim press-stud one – ultra-skinny, so that’s for S as well.
