We were blessed with beautiful weather despite the forecast of rain.  Thank you to everyone who came along and contributed to the success of the day!
Arriving early, Mel and Alex were already hard at work organising marquees and stalls.  After help from Geoff the Coffee Van man with reversing the trailer, the BBQ was set up and ready to go when John Sklenar and Peter Cribb arrived.  They were ably assisted by Geoff Cawsey and Dulcie Heard.   
The book sale covered 3 large tables with more on the ground - Mel has been collecting books for a year so there were plenty to be found in all interest areas.  Debra Ryan was assisted by volunteer Molly.
Shraddha and Lesley 'floated' from table to table as the need arose and were helped by Mel's Godson Anthony and his mother Carmela.
Karolina and Edith arrived at lunchtime and Edith brought along Carol Qi and a friend to help on the BBQ after Peter left for basketball finals.
The Coffee & scones van did a roaring trade and their tables and chairs were appreciated.  Funda Ozkan Tokatlii from Funda Art & Craft had a fabulous stand with many hand-painted watercolour art works, cushions and jewellery.  She and her daughter were keen participants.   We were also joined by Rubina from Jobs Victoria who met many of the attendees and made great connections.     
Inside the shop, Mel had a huge array of plants {some donated by Bunnings Maribyrnong, some from Lesley and others} vegetables and herbs from the Kensington Garden and the mini repair hub set up in the back room.
