Jumble sales

Post  Billy D on 2018-06-19, 5:51 am

Never have them now do they?
When I was a kid all the schools & church halls used to have them.
I can remember my nanna & granny going & buying woolly stuff.
They would pick away at them until they began to unravel.
We had to sit there with our arms outstretched while they wrapped the wool around your wrists which would be knitted up into something new.

Also, Harvest Festivals.
We did it every year at junior school when it was leek show time.
We had to go around and collect tins of food & then see what we could get off the allotment lads.
All this would be dished out to the old folk in the village.
Happy days them, I miss those times.

Mrs S used to love a car boot when she could walk.

Schools and Sunday Schools do still have Harvest Festivals but yes jumble sales have been replaced by Car Boots these days.

I used to like the American thing of having a garage sale - where you stuck all your old but still serviceable bits and pieces, clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, curtains, bedding, baby stuff, ornaments, books etc, out in the garage and driveway and people would come round and buy it! Amazed how much you could get rid of in those days (late 70's) when I lived there, and the bargains you could pick up!! Nowadays I send most of my old stuff to charity shops and the recycling part of the tip.
