A variety of goods were on sale, from jewellery to decorative items.

Paul Jennings, a volunteer duty manager at the arts centre, said: “It went very well.

“We had a good flow of people throughout the day. About 100 people in total to look at items.

“Everyone said it was very good.”

The next table top sale to be held at the arts centre will take place on 12 May. Mr Jennings said eight tables have already been taken for it, out of 16 available.

On the same day, a fairtrade coffee morning was held at the venue, which also proved popular.

It raised £45 for Pocklington FLAG.
