    Quite big again today, and relatively quiet on the shouty meat man front.

    I got an Olfa SK-4 self-retracting knife. Quality item.

    The pipe fell off and was retrieved, but the main unit is still missing.

    If you hear or see anything.....

    Big today and quite a few 'new' people with some more interesting stuff than we have seen of late, though nothing for me.

    There was a lot of plastic fuel cans about.

    Always tomorrow...

    Yeah, I saw those, mostly in one place, but the plastic ones were all over the field.

    Smaller today, but better.

    A wide selection of hockey sticks and rounders bats, plus a sphygmomanometer and a tattoo gun.

    Nothing for me again.

    Reasonably large still, but little of real interest - the only thing that stood out was a trombone, but that's not even on my 'potentially useful' list.

    Quite big today, with the warm weather, even with the circus there.

    I bought nothing, but came away with a nice stainless steel cafetiere - double-skinned, with an insulating vacuum space.

    Quite a noticeable amount of ex-military stuff about, and a lot of petrol strimmers.

    More activity than I expected, but nothing to interest me.




    I didn't think that a jacket was going to be worthwhile - it would have been.

    Still quite big as the weather holds on - a few 'traders' who seemed different. There was a selection of metronomes on different stalls.

    I got a Sandvik handsander.

    I did well, got a bottle of southern comfort for £10, a pair of tin snips and a
    adjustable spanner for 40p, loads of crisps for £3 and a LED lantern for £1.50.
    And the wife nearly bought a shepherd's "crotch" :lol: from some walking sticks .

    She did look a bit sheepish as I explained It's a shepherd's crook!

    She may know shepherds from a different circle to those in your acquaintances..?

    Far more activity than I expected - but, then, I did expect 'none'.

    Nothing for me, though.

    Cold and swampy, but remarkable tenacity being shown....
