Hi, my name is Charles and I have Too Much Stuff. Too many books, too many CDs, too many DVDs … you name ’em, I have piles of ’em. Great big tottering towers of ’em, to be precise. Unfortunately, there is no longer enough space in my bijou residence to accommodate said Tottering Towers, and my study resembles a cross between the aftermath of an explosion in a head-shop and a Turner Prize-winning installation on the subject of compulsive hoarding.
Soooo … the ultimate solution has been devised. To wit: flogging off a bunch of the surplus, plus other oddage and soddage, at 11am this coming Sunday (that’s December 8) via a stall at the West Hampstead Community Market, held in the forecourt of West Hampstead Thameslink Station, on West End Lane opposite Costa Coffee. If you want to solve a few of those ticklish Xmas-prezzie dilemmae, stick some of that folding stuff into your wallet, set your GPS for ‘NW6 2LJ’ and c’mon along.
I’ll be there (along with a couple of lovely accomplices) to say hey and maybe even bend your shell-like on assorted topics, includng the spring 2014 Hothouse Project course in Journalism As Craft And Art. (If you can’t find anything you like on the stall, you could always buy your Loved One – or even yourself – a place on the course.)
So hie thee thither. And dress warm.
