Stalls in Wymondham.

The film begins with a shot of a car and dilapidated buildings on a wasteground site. There are crowds out side a building. The camera pans to a fruit and produce stall. A van enters the site and there are further shots of the sale and of stall holders setting up and laying out their wares. These are varied and include bicycles, rabbits and general junk. There are shots of people browsing and close up shots of the flower and produce stall. There are further shots of people arriving and browsing and of a refreshment stall before the auctioneer tolls a bell to announce the auction. There are shots of the auction in progress and some good crowd shots. The film ends showing people packing up their wares. The last shots are of a man carrying rabbits by their ears to his lorry. One escapes the box and sits on top.
