Using A Grocery Shopping Cart To Have A "Hodge-Podge" Or "Jumble Sale"

Learning From The Brits About How To Sell Junk

I love this idea of throwing all your junk or White Elephants into a grocery shopping cart and having one whopper "Hodge-podge" or "Jumble" Sale.

While in the United Kingdom, Jumble Sales are a bit more elaborate, why not have a mini-"Hodge-podge (Jumble) sale right in your own booth?

According to Wikipedia, "Hodge-podge" is a word used to describe a confused or disorderly mass or collection of thinks; a "mess" or a "jumble".

The Jumble Room

I have heard the term "Jumble Room" used by Brits to refer to the spare room in the house where all the unwanted things headed for the "Jumble Sale" reside. Perhaps we in the USA may use the term "rummage sale".

In the United Kingdom, a Jumble Sale is usually sponsored by a local Scout Group or church.
