So what do you do on a Winter Sunday morning when it is minus 4° (yay! just found the degree symbol°°°)
Go to North Cave Boot Sale!
I love a Boot Sale. You never know what treasures you might find.
Even, as today, when I am sitting in the car, waiting for Graham to search the stalls, I still find the anticipation exciting.
There is always a mental list of things to look out for: books (always books!), jigsaw puzzles for me, stoneware bottles, glass jewellery. But there are always the unexpected surprises - some cutup pieces of yellow plastic necklace, which turn out to be amber beads, a Chinese box full of ginseng, a pair of Goth Boots which have been to a 'Cure' gig.
Today I am actually parked close enough to see what is on some of the stalls, and the outstanding object is a red wooden front door, complete with door knocker.
Hang on, Graham is back! Much sooner than expected.
He said there are less stalls than usual, perhaps the forecast threatening snow has kept sellers away. But he is very proud of himself as he is bearing the buy of the day - a HUGE bunch of Mistletoe, covered in berries.
He is even more proud of himself because he has 'haggled' for this purchase.
There are actually 3 smaller bunches priced at £2 a bunch, and Graham offered £5 for three bunches and it was accepted!
Now, that is what I call a bunch of Mistletoe!
