Levenshulme Jumble Trail #2 – The September Edit in Bargain Burb – Sunday 18th
Roll up! Roll up! Levenshulme Jumble Trail is back this Sunday 18th of September for a second helping in the late of Summer and it promises to be jumble of the year if the amount of stalls is anything to go by!
At last count, there’s 74 stalls signed up to take part, all open from 11am til 5pm. (or until all the stuff is sold!) The weather is looking set to be rather glorious too. What better way to spend a Sunday than perusing your neighbours bits and bobs and grabbing some major bargains.
Magpies = Jumble Trail Stalls
What’s The Concept?
The idea is to gather the community together to do a traditional style yard sale outside their own homes. The great thing about it is the use of a Champion, this time around the wonderful local resident Carly Ralph aka Carly Warly who’s been doing a stellar job of organising it all.
The website acts as a map for all the stalls, which can be used as a guide for the Jumble Trail. Each stall can let folk know what they are offering. Use it as your guide and there also be some print out maps on the day.
There’s all sorts on offer, bric a brac, furniture, vintage clothes even drones! Puppets for sale on Cromwell Grove, Stan Chow prints available on Osborne Rd. Some people have set up their stalls for charitable purposes, Beech Range for the Stroke Association as well as locally grown charity Rescue Kitties R Us on Stanhope Street. Tea and cakes being offered on a few stalls along with cooling refreshments, Pimm’s and cordials on others.
Levy Jumble – Take 2!
The last Levy Jumble in June was a roaring success. People were mooching about on a lovely hot day and lucky punters got all sorts – zephyrs, saxaphone’s and clarinets, house plants, clown masks, bikes, books, kids clothes,vinyl, bric a brac.
So much stuff was had by so many. Reports circulated that stall holders in June earned £150 (£150!) so that was incentive enough for newbies to give it a go this time around.
A Great Way To Meet the Neighbours
Most people agreed the best bit about June’s Trail was that it was a great way to meet the neighbours and be nosey up the streets one doesn’t tend to venture often. From West Point, to Highfield Allotments, near the derelict Buildings of Chapel Street and the borders of The Fallowfield Loop, 74 Stalls in 6 hours seems totally feasible. Who can challenge themselves to do them all?
After Party – Spend Your Earnings
Drinks at The Klondyke are arranged for all the stall holders and Jumble winners afterwards. Have fun rumbling in the jumble Levy.
