Well the little gate side stand is up.
It’s made from an old wooden box that originally held three jeroboams of champagne. Unfortunately not drunk by me. The grand opening was a little later than anticipated as it took a while to screw the box to the fence. The whole process was monitored by two Polish builders who were cleaning out the guttering of the house next door. Once the umbrella was in place I was protected from any stray splashes.
The umbrella is attached to the other side of the fence with wire clips and the cash box is attached to the umbrella. An old white linen napkin hangs at the back and the golden stars are temporary until I can get into the attic to find our outdoor fairy lights.
The whole process has been great fun. I’m going to make some jars of Belgian Pears today as I found three bags on the Tesco CFC.
All I need now is customers!
