Rain, rain go away, I wanna shop

A heavy drizzle threatened to turn the Discovery Bay flea market into a washout. 
But luckily it dissipated after a bit and everyone could display their goods again.

PALS was doing quite a brisk trade in antique silver. I must admit, I was sorely tempted by the King George VI silver medallion.

Mui Wo wedding procession

Epiphany Church jumble sale is back!

This is the sale I've been waiting all year for. And I wasn't the only one. I passed the church at 9.30am and there were already people milling outside.
It was so packed at 11am that I had to elbow my way in. Why is it so popular? Clothes are HK$10 for four, the better quality pieces are HK$20 each and suits/coats are HK$100. You can emerge with huge bin bags full of stuff and still have spent less than HK$100.
Homeware was less than HK$20.
 And books and CDs started from HK$2 each.
 Is it any wonder I went in there four times today and am planning just as many trips tomorrow?
