Good old fashioned Jumble sales are a bit rarer now in the age of EBay, collectables fairs, table top and car boot sales. I bumped into one today in my local Village Hall whilst out for a walk.
Was it worth the cheeky fundraising 20p entry fee?
Another such jumble recently turned up this attractive Corgi stagecoach, a recent gift from a family member.
What I like about the horse bus and stagecoach is the detail of figures, seats to add more sitting railway passenger figures and the baggage and “riding shotgun” waeponry.
The two cowboy figures inside will be difficult to paint, working through the windows! What great supply, ambush and bandit scenarios this Corgi toy model opens up for ACW and Western games.
As well as the horse bus and attractive red Ford Model T van, both £1 each, I also picked up some old ‘Fahnenpicker’ or cocktail stick flags (Fahnen – flags) for 50p, that may one day come in useful somehow.
Not a bad haul of two Lledo vehicles and the flags all for £2.50 – lovely to step aback and watch a proper old rummage through the jumble in my local Village Hall.
Well worth that twenty pence entrance fee?
