My friend and I have organised a 'Grand Book Fair' in our village Tithe Barn for 2 days from tomorrow.
We have 21 stalls tomorrow and 14 on Sun. It's our first book fair so we hope it goes well!
We have a local children's author Anne Stephenson both selling and signing books for us.
I have a stall for CavalierMatters and I can't believe how many books I have to sell! There must be over 300 ! I'm something of a hoarder (!) and I've had a massive sort out of novels, craft books, cookery books and I've been given lots of photography and all kinds of books.
The weather forecast is not too bad for tomorrow but looks awful for Sunday .
I just hope we get lots of people in !!:)

Sorry to be late wishing you well for this Christine, but really hope it is going ok and you are raising lots and lots of money :) It's so kind of you to do your fundraising work and very much appreciated.

I hope the weather isn't too bad - just heard that things are pretty awful in England [I won't tell you that it is sunny here - OOPS!] At least you are indoors so hopefully people will want to come in out of the rain!

Thank you so much Nicki.
We did really well Saturday morning and then it all went downhill !!!!
Torrential rain and very windy! However, I'll be sending Tania a cheque for 166.00.
Included is a donation of 20 from my sister and 35 from the sale of my beading and jewellery sort out!
So I'm quite happy.

A special :thnx: to your sister too, that was really kind of her.


Hope you didn't end up bringing TOO many books back home again!
