Whitegate Boot Sale

More bargains from the boot sale this morning at soggy Whitegate. The football ground was only a third full because of the possibility of rain -but the rain held off thankfully. Got 3 DVD's for a £1 from Bob's stall and had a chat to him about the exhibition which he hoped to see tomorrow - but realised later that it doesn't open on a Monday. He supplied some of the rare artifacts that Hazel is displaying. He used to work at the Museum back in the 80's he said before half of it was knocked down. Its a shame they couldn't save the other part as the smaller space doesn't attract that many visitors now the the Lion Salt Works has opened. Also bought cheaply were some ceramic pot stands, large reel of twine, a razor doo-dad thingy, and a trivet. Archie decided not to come as he was working this afternoon and needed his beauty sleep.

Private View

Nice evening of chat with old friends including Tony and Pene Eve and surprise guest Bob Nancollis who was at Manchester College of Art back in the 60's. Nice to see our neighbours Richard, Mark and Eilain turn up too. Archie was working so couldn't be there. Charlie Holt did a good introduction as did the nice lady who's name I forget from the museum. Hazel gave Gina , who organised the show some flowers to thank her for her help. Hazel's Mom and sister Audrey came too which was a surprise as they hardly ever go out in the evenings.

Collage & Curiosity Exhibition

Coming soon to the Weaver Hall Museum in Northwich if you are ever passing through during the next three months. Collage work by Charlie Holt ( pictured ) and metalwork/ inventions by Hazel Jones. Also collages on the theme of "museums and collecting" by yours truly. Putting it up next week. Should be fun!
