Spring Yard Sale at Talana
It's not a South African tradition to hold a yard sale.
But Noo Noo decided to host one, and donate all proceeds to the 'Help a Rural Child' charity.
And where better to hold one, then in the garden at Talana, where a tree stump proves the perfect place to try on a pair of Steele's sneakers.
Facebook is the advertising method of choice, as friends begin to arrive and head for the bargain rails.
There is sunshine and music, Pimms and lemonade, sundresses and hoolahoops.
And bargains to be found.
When it was over the rails were still full!
Noo Noo knows to market to a wider audience next time, and not to hold it on the weekend of Earthdance!
My favourite sight was a box marked 'Gareth's T-shirts R20, Haven't you always wanted to be more like Gareth'.
