What’s happened to jumble sales?

I AM wondering whatever has happened to jumble sales?

I used to love them. I’d queue up with a couple of friends outside whatever place it was being held, looking forward to the doors being opened and then go in to get some great bargains, especially if we also had children to clothe.

However, I scour the paper every week to see if there might be one we can go to and there are none.

There used to be loads of them on a Saturday. Now it’s all car boot sales and yard sales but no jumble sales.

Bring back jumble sales I say.
