Grand Sale

Well the sale was a great success...we raised £800 for the O'Connor  Haematology Unit at the RSH....which considering the weather was just brilliant! The weather was defiantly against us with the first week being torrential rain..and it wasn't much better the second week with lots of showers around..Bill was a true star-- covering everything up with plastic sheets and uncovering it all every morning.. he said it was like being on the market again!  We met some lovely people from all over -including a couple from Perth--who bought a 12in x 24in Stormy Poppies oil painting-- hope they got it back OK!!! It was going in hand luggage I think...Most of the tiny paintings went and the 10in x 12in paintings too.. Plus two 36in x 36in paintings.. The Swallow Falls on the far end of the stands went to a lovely couple up the road along with another 36in x 36in one called Waters Edge

The waterfall and the  orange landscape both sold too..

This one was painted by me in the first few moths of starting to paint..lovely to think its gone to a new home--

only a couple of these left now-- they flew off the tables..

This one sold to a chap who only called to pick up some tent pegs we were selling on a FB page... it was leaning against the marquee when he pulled up and he fell in love with it--again its a very early one! 36in x 36in. So we have made quite a bit of  storage room with the sale...

I only have a handful of greetings cards left, and I shall keep those for myself.. We have been selling everything off--the marquee has gone, fold up tables gone, display stands gone,, So we are getting the garage back quietly..Next thing to go will be the van... that will be a sad day, but we have no use for it any longer...Going to get 12 months MOT on it first, Bill will take off the vinyl sign writing and she will be for sale.. My Bill has worked so hard bless him... I'm as much use as a chocolate teapot when it comes to anything physical now.. so Bill has done it all..can never thank him enough.. I am going to be painting in a new style shortly-- it does not involve brushes and should be easier to do for this space...
