Bloody cold at 8.am at the car boot, and I only bought 12 bags of crisps.
I didn't venture up there until tennish - amazed at the tenacity of the vendors - it's chilly enough wandering around, but it must feel much colder standing about.
Nothing for me, but some interesting stuff, not just Christmas tat.
Still a few hard-cases attending - nothing for me.
Was the guy there selling bacon sammiches?
I don't think so - not 100% sure, though.
Nope. Her indoors will have to find alternative hangover cures!
First one of the new season* - not too bad, but nothing for me.
They seemed to be using the Stone Road access for both in and out - there was considerable traffic chaos (of course) and the coppers turned up, offering 'advice' on the matter. Whether they actually offered any assistance, I'm not sure.
* There could have been others, I've been away during the run-up period.
It was the first.....randomly it didnt wake me up on my day off & I didnt hear the shouty veg man at all.....maybe he was having an Easter Sunday lie in too....
Do they have a shouty meat man too?
There were no shouty idiots, neither meat nor vegetable-based.
There is the potential for a second run in the morning, weather permitting.
Moist underfoot, but worth going.
Not a lot for me but I did get a socket rail. Like this, but with seven outlets:-
There was also a whole piano. if you need one?
I must have seen 8 generators, but still only bought a pp3 battery for the smoke alarm!
A cool breeze up there today - slightly more interesting than it has been, but still nothing for me.
Very big today, with odd vendors, suggesting that somewhere else might be off - a better selection of stuff, but nothing for me.
The road to riches.
We came back with a delphinium and a selection of hanging-basket plants (but sadly, no everlasting sweet-peas).
And two of these to add to my fleet of Elizabethan warship models.
Had a great day at the car boot, a box of about 30 drill bits all the small sizes that I constantly break, A crowbar, and small jemmy to replace the one I can't find but will instantly turn up now I have replaced it, two cans of paint one which says white exterior gloss and when I checked it is really red gloss, but at 50p is still a bargain and I'm sure I will find something to paint red.
Your two small jemmies?
Smaller, but better, I thought - a scraper handle and a (spare) toasting fork.
The most exciting thing was the weird bloke under the railway bridge.
Cordless angle grinder today.
Something that has been on my 'general want list' for some time.
I do feel that you should have to have a licence to possess one, though...
