THEY had such a great day at their last one back in September that Bullimbal is hosting a third boot sale and market day tomorrow at the school grounds.
The funds from that second boot sale all went to help the school library to buy what school administration manager Tracey Bradbery has described as “much needed” books.
“Pam and Mike Pavey ran a white elephant stall and a cake stall and raised $899.25 that day,” Mrs Bradbery said.
“Pam and Mike have been wonderful supporters of Bullimbal School and this was a fantastic result. The school collected $380 from stallholders’ fees, the P&C also raised $188 from the barbecue, and another $430 from a Fathers Day raffle.”
They had stalls that included hot donuts, a sausage sizzle, espresso coffee hut, knitted hand-crafts, fresh produce, garage sale items, handbags, toys, garden gazebos, make-up, children’s wear, home- made soap, fudge and face painting.
“So this time around, we were really hoping to attract more garage sale stalls and fresh produce. There is a real need in Tamworth for a produce trading venue and we hope that the Bullimbal market day can get a reputation for providing this service,” Mrs Bradbery said.
Stallholders are asked to make a donation of $20 to the school to be there, and this time, all money raised from the day goes towards the purchase of a defibrillator for the school.
Mrs Bradbery says she hopes that this time around things will be bigger and with more entertainment; she is pushing to create a festival feel.
The boot sale goes from 9am to 1pm tomorrow.
