Colin the bass player had read my blog entry about how My Lovely Wife lugged home a free hand-cranked sewing machine, just the oddest in a series of artifacts she has started accumulating.
"What you want to try is a jumble sale," said Colin.
"A jumble sale?" said I. "What's that?"
Last Saturday I went to the village hall in Wolvercote, just north of Oxford, to find out. Click on the video link to join me.
As it happened, I didn't see Colin there. He said he'd heard the Wolvercote jumble sale would not be up to its "usual standard" so didn't bother going. Colin's a difficult man to please. Me, I can't wait till the next one.
