Polperro is a lovely small port in south east Cornwall, where the active local community gets together to raise funds to support their annual festival.  This year, Richard Madeley, who lives at nearby Talland Bay was the auctioneer for an amazing collection of donated art, crafts, events, etc. held at the British Legion.  Interestingly, the auction lots started with the lowest prices and went to the highest (lunch with Richard!) but the third highest was an year's parking in the village! 

Richard, with the help of a bottle of wine and loads of volunteers, not only auctioned one of our lovely pure alpaca pashmina style shawls but modelled it, and told people how wonderfully soft it was ... and as a result obtained the full price and a bit more - but they are on special offer on our website - ideal for Christmas!

Photo's thanks to Sam Bence and his trusty mobile phone, in a crowded and excited auction ...  Thank you Sam!
