I'm not quite packed and definitely not ready
and the sitting room looks like an explosion at a jumble sale
with fabric, bags, marker pens, labels and ribbon strewn on every surface
as I write tickets, reduce prices on lazy stock,
measure rolls and remnants of textiles,
press clothes and linens and bag-up quantities of haberdashery
Amongst the multitude pile-it-high-and-sell-it-cheap bargains
I also want to showcase a few special gems
like the French sewing stand above
and this beautifully decoupaged mannequin on her metal stand.
Lizzie and Clare's fairs are always a treat for both buyers and sellers
so hopefully by Friday evening I'll be sorted, packed, loaded and ready!
Look forward to seeing you there
