Work it Michael! / The first ever New Gallery Jumble

The gorgeous 60's beaded glasses case (one of my personal stall favourites at the moment) £12

The lovely Nicole of Spontaneous Reality who ran a very popular flower headband workshop using discarded flowers from local flower shops and created some foxy creations through the day!

The shopping wall featured work by local artists for sale and included the lovely lady above. Painted in acrylic and oils onto a wood panel by Stuart.

The fabulous Michael who bought this sheer red 80's shirt from dearsweetagatha for £18. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and you rock!! It looked divine on you.

The first ever New Gallery Jumble which was held yesterday at The New Gallery in Camberwell. A jumble with a strong moral grounding, it only featured up-cycled, re-purposed, and second hand things. Advertised as 'A place to shop with a clear conscience' it was right up my street. It was a busy day and as a result was a fab day for trading. It was great to hold a stall at a space that was organised so differently and also had a totally different ambience to the spaces that I usually hold stalls at (almost always pubs or bars). It allowed creativity through display and just breathed some life into stall holding at jumbles in general. The clothing rails were provided for sellers which was an extremely kind gesture as carrying the rail to and from the venue is never my (I say my, however it's always Stuart who carries the rail...cheeky me!) Well anyway it's never any sellers favourite part of doing a sale!

I met some fabulous new sellers especially Yvette of Hope and Eden and her sister Louise. It never ceases to amaze me how friendly and welcoming the jumbling community is. It's great running your own stall.

I will be back at the New Gallery Jumble on the 19th of February, put the date in your diary!
