The early clouds dispersed, and the clear blue sky attracted a steady flow of interested members of the public to view the offerings provided by the 58 stalls. Indeed, as the limit to the number of stalls was reached, unfortunately some late arrivals had to be turned away as there were no spaces available. One enterprising late stall holder set himself up in the car park adjacent to the Martello Tower hoping to make some sales.
In addition to stalls offering items often found at these Boot Fairs there were stalls offering plants, homemade conserves, cards, clothes, jigsaws and other children’s toys, tools, jewellery, crockery and collectables, as well as sporting items including lawn bowls woods, fishing rods and golf clubs.
more SEAFORD ROTARY would like to express its immense gratitude to those members of the Seaford community who attended the Rotary Boot, Craft and Produce Fairs in 2021, stallholders and the public, all contributed to making the fairs this year a great success.

more IT IS A well-known fact that the number of stallholders at a Boot Fair is inversely proportional to the number and darkness of clouds in the sky.
