A vintage find from Plough Lane.
A trip over to the Young’s Brewery site in Wandsworth ended up with a quick visit to Plough Lane,Wimbledon. The car park was full for this Wednesday in September so a good sign that there may be more traders.
An eclectic mix of items found today from a sale at Plough Lane, SW London.
Found on a stall near the Stadium wall was a trader with boxes from a house Clearance, there amongst the tat I found a green fishing box full of terminal tackle for sea fishing and an Efgeeco Bait Box. In another cardboard box near by was an old souvenir penknife from the Coronation in 1953, a Meta 71 camping saucepan, several pike floats and a Platignum Tidy Tubs. Best find of all was a 172mm Sandeel Red Gill by Alex.J.Ingram of Mevagissey, Cornwall.
One of the best bass lures a Red Gill by Alex Ingram of Mevagissy Cornwall.
On another stand I found a pewter jug by Cornish Pewter maker Edward Nevitt & Co. of Falmouth and the one item I had called in for a tin funnel for my Tilley Lamp.
The total sum spent in change for all items was £7.50 a number I recall from my admission ticket.
