Nostalgic Mix

Well, October 9th came and went in a flurry of stalls and a crowd of visitors asthe first ever (and not the last!) Nostalgic Mix Fair took place in the Civic Hall in Totnes.

A very big thank you to all of the stallholders and their helpers and also to our hundreds of visitors!

So sorry that it's taken until today to get some pictures posted but my PC died, the router threw a hissy fit and my elderly laptop refused to recognise a new home hub!!

Oh well, they say that these things come in threes. Thanks to a very nice lady in the call centre (Delhi I think) all is fairly well now and the laptop and hub are on speaking terms whilst the old PC sits in the corner being shunned!! I know that doesn't help but it makes me feel better.

I plan to put all of the pictures (including a lot more of the busy part of the day) onto the Nostalgic Mix blog which I will link to this.
More soon.....
