JUM­BLE TRAIL: It’s bar­gains time round and about

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

BAR­GAIN hunters flocked to a vil­lage for its ‘jum­ble trail’ on Sun­day.

Peo­ple set up stalls out­side their homes in Chal­font St Peter and sold toys, clothes, fur­ni­ture, home­grown vegetables, cakes and gen­eral bric-a-brac.

Or­gan­iser Vicky Royal, 46, of Grove End, said: “We ended up with 21 stalls which was bril­liant, we were re­ally pleased with that.

“Some of the stalls made quite a lot of money and it was a good fun event. A few peo­ple said they had met neigh­bours who they had never man­aged to have con­ver­sa­tions with be­fore.”

Mrs Royal says she wants to make the sale an an­nual event and wants to at­tract more buy­ers and sell­ers.

Stalls in­cluded baby and chil­dren’s items, in Gold Hill West, and de­signer brands and nurs­ery fur­ni­ture, in Leachcroft.

Shop­pers used an on­line map to guide them to par­tic­i­pat­ing houses.
