We Had Fun
Above is the picture of the bric-a-brac stall. It's the second year I've helped out there and it brings out the market trader in me. The Bastow parents and I were a bit green last year and duped into selling things way below cost. But we were much more savvy this time, identifying donated objects that might have had some value with the help of Ebay research and advice from an antique dealing parent. This meant that our Victorian toothbrush holder and assorted porcelain pill boxes fetched reasonable prices.
Days like this give me a warm fuzzy feeling. Whilst I can't volunteer on a regular basis I enjoy it when I do and hope that giving my time free can be more and more a feature of my life in the future. And because we had so much fun, I might be able to persuade the rest of the Lovelygrey family to join me.
