A new market table, built specially for me by Bernard, my neighbor at the Brickworks Farmers Market. He runs Shelf Life, specializing in reclaimed and salvaged wood.....and very handsome his wares are.
I used it right away.
The trestles were bought several years ago from a market supply house on the outskirts of Aix, France.....its a wonder we found it as the store was in a large industrial park. Baggage allowance must have been more in those days.
The old table top was becoming too large and cumbersome for me to manage, so Bernard designed a top of lightweight strips that I can roll up and carry easily.
Of course, I have to re-think my van packing plan, I always take too much, but if people don't see it they can't buy it.
Set up in the garden to try some different table cloths. I have a couple of these 50s brocade bedspreads of the right weight, but feel they are to 'fancy' for an outdoor space.
I could look for a couple of plain heavy spreads, sheets would be to lightweight, I fear.
Puurleeze......don't suggest I actually look at retail!.
Thank you Bernard.
