Buckland St Mary Xmas Bazaar 2013

Saturday afternoon was the Buckland St Mary Xmas Bazaar.  This is where Father Christmas puts in his first appearance of the season.  Funny how he looked different to Father Christmas last year!!  Think he had done something different with his beard!!

Neil and I were manning the Bric-a-Brac stall again.  It’s not easy selling other people’s junk!  Especially when you can only charge 50p or £1.00 per item generally.  The most we took on a single item was £3.00.  We made just £38.60, still it’s more than we would have made if we hadn’t turned out!!

Neil delighted in trying to sell inappropriate items to our friends.

He even managed to sell a game called Saints and Sinners to the local parish priest.

There was a good turnout of people and quite a few stalls.  The teas and cakes always does well as does the produce stall and the cakes and pastries stall.  There were 2 raffles, a tombola, guess the name of the giraffe, greetings cards, jewellery and quite a few other stalls too.

All in all a bit of fun.  We then had to pack up all the left over stuff and now we need to take it to a local charity shop and hope they can sell the stuff we couldn’t sell!!
