Arundel Festival is over for another year.
The streets of the small town that for 10 days
host to thousands of festival goers
are now quiet.
There is no doubt it's a fantastic event.
If tiring. LOL
We had a good week with gallery trailers coming
to view the artists around our warehouses.
There were so many events around the town.......
I've lost count.....
Our friends Clare and Mike played outside the warehouse for two days.
Called themselves "MangeTout"
on account of their playing French Cafe music.
Some woman was most CROSS
as she sat down and ordered.
She thought it meant we were serving
Coffee/cakes and wine.
"Well, it's advertised." She insisted.
"I don't think it is." came my curt reply.
"Oh yes it definitely says in the programme.......
Cafe Music with MangeTout."
I'm not saying anything...LOL
Here's a few photos from the last day.......

Martin and Mary have an amazing style.
Many years ago they were in the warehouses where Nass and I are at the moment.
Actually I think they had all three warehouses.
Then they needed even space so went to The Vinery at Poling.
Which they outgrew.
So now they have a new even larger space.
The Vinery was a mushroom farm years ago.
It is now home to several
Maybe I'm biased but I think this is the most spectacular.
Have a wander around Clubhouse Interiors showroom.
