Jumble and Pearls is getting closer so we thought we'd expose some of the traders!
We've not been before but the idea of this fayre makes me think of my all time favourite shop, Snoopers Paradise in Brighton, and to days before I had the responsibility of 3 little people, ergo; the ability to wander around shops in a carefree manner without constantly panicking every time a small child disappeared from my view.
The shop is huge and you can find hundreds (and thousands) of things you'd not find anywhere else. Old and older toys, jewellery, furniture, clothes, bags, cutlery, crockery, paintings, embroideries, records, beautiful old ashtrays, you name it. It is my favourite shop ever and eckers, I can't have been there for about 8 years… dreadful! (Must remedy that this year.)
Jumble and Pearls may not be as large or dusty but it will certainly be just as eclectic and we can't wait to snoop around.
So what has got us so excited? Have a look…
