  After a lifetime of doing, making and hoarding, it is time to clear the decks and pass  my goods on to anyone who can make use of them. SO..... when I have my penultimate textile fair in September, I will have a garage sale of surplus (and I hope useful) goods at give-away prices.  These range from sale room narrow display counters (3 matching), cubby holes in a large cabinet,  folding bookshelves, white wire hanging racks and basket stands for shop display and various really large wooden racks for really bulky storage - blankets, linens pillows etc.,also many kinds of fittings, for pegboarding, curtain poles and finials, curtain headings (rings, hooks in many sizes) and some household fittings left over from various country house moves in my life - door fittings, lighting chandeliers, table lamps, etc., and garden stuff - if you are interested to view these in advance, telephone me evenings 01225 866 136 to arrange appointment.   I am anxious to reduce all this as soon as possible before taking it to our local recycle dump!  We are not moving house just yet but trying to make maintenance of our wonderful old house simpler!


  1. Oh, if only I did not live so far away in NYC, I would so wish to see these treasures that you now wish to allow others to enjoy.

    The notion of any of what you've collected and enjoyed actually making contact with any sort of dump is shocking.

    I hope that wise eyes nearby will see this post and realize the treasure that you would now like to share.

    Best regards.

    What are the dates in September for your sale. It would certainly be worth the flight!
