Legs of Iron

A quiet day for buyers all in Arcadia ahead of the traditional Bank Holiday Monday Feast of the Car Boot Sale and an opportunity to take up the generous offer of some iron trestle legs in exchange for some priceless cardboard boxes and old balls of string from the artist and gentleman known as Rupert Blanchard.  A dealer's most precious resource are his legs, to walk around cavernous auction rooms, markets and car boot sales and to stand tables upon when selling Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul and occasional tat.
