How much fun can you have for the price of a sausage roll?

Yesterday I went to the Reading Guild of Artists small art sale in the Sir John Madejski Art Gallery at Reading Museum. On show there were a lot of pictures that were for sale. Wayne and I looked around these and also at the Tudor to Modern portrait exhibition that was in the same room. The Tudor to Modern exhibition shows the progression of portrait painting from Tudor times by displaying one picture from each important artistic age taken from the museum’s collection. This includes a large magnificent picture of Elizabeth I. It didn’t take long for us to look around these two things so we made our way to something completely different that was going on at the Hexagon. 
At the Hexagon was the Real Vintage and Good Food Market, which unlike previous years was free to get in. In the foyer was food stalls tempting us with free taster samples which we could not resist. I tried bread with olive oil, fudge, sausage roll, some cheese, biscuits with a dip, samosas, and a spring roll with a sweet chilli dip. Finally I settled for a cheese and pickle sausage roll from a company called Pig in the Middle, for my lunch. This consisted of a firm sausage meat filling with cheese and pickle throughout. It was very yummy. I also bought some fudge from Chutney Trace, who is based in Wokingham, to enjoy later at home for pudding. 
Then we went into the main auditorium where there were many stalls selling clothes and other vintage items for us to browse. We had a good look around. Upstairs was another set of stalls selling much the same. In the bottom of a box of jewellery I found some badges which were good value at £1 each.www.rga-artists.org.uk
