Sunny week end and a happy brocante at Gym's Sandpit Club in the Lecrin Valley
Last week end, my darling Gym organized a bazaar in her restored barn, baptized the Sandpit Club. As always, it's a fun event where one can find a bit of everything: local food, plants, books and music, clothes, carpets, paintings, decorative objects.....The weather was just perfect and the sky a happy clear blue...We stayed nearly all day chatting with friends, meeting new ones. This morning, when I called Gym to tell her how much we enjoyed it, I said "that was a great party!"..it was merely a fleamarket but it really was like a party !
the mayor of the village gave his authorization to use the little plaza near the barn
At lunch time, the lounge upstairs was packed
James the cook is busy making burgers. The day before, he prepared chili con carne, chicken curry, salads, apple crumble to keep our stomachs happy. As you can see, the clock indicates 3.25pm...yes, lunch is quite late in Andalucia!
Gym is busy welcoming newcomers
After lunch jazz musicians entertain us until early evening
Outside, the brocante is still on until 7pm in a cool and laid back ambiance
The sky is blue, the good mood is contagious....I don't think I could ever get tired of such happy days!When we leave, we cross the neighbors going for a ride
Back home, I took a pic of my little finds. I love my new chunky choker
but what really intrigues me is this vintage mirror cum lipstick holder. Ingenious, isn't it ? Does anyone out there know this brand Stratton ?
ps: for info, if you're in the area, Gym will host another bazaar in mid-december. You can see more on Gym's antique shop here
and...Clare, I was so GLAD to have met you again....At last !!! xoxo
