Search for tall, dark and handsome man mistakenly sold dressing table in Crook

First published in News

A SEARCH is on for a ‘tall, dark and handsome man’ who was mistakenly sold a dressing table at a rummage sale in Crook.

Crook Memorial Hall working committee held the event on November 14 to help raise money for the village hall.

They sold an old-fashioned cream dresser with mirrors, which had been temporarily left in the building after being used in artwork pictures for a local band’s upcoming EP.

Alison Park, secretary of the committee, said: “We assumed someone had brought it in and left it for our rummage sale and we sold it.

“We don’t know who he was. He was tall, dark and handsome with a wife and two children.”

Gary Trimington, a member of the band, which does not wish to be named, said the dresser had been lent to them by a friend and had sentimental value.

“We couldn’t fit it in our van and we had to rush off as we had a gig so we decided to leave it to one side and collect it the next evening.

“Unknown to us there was a rummage sale and when we came back to our horror the table was gone.

“We are desperate to track down this gentleman with the hope that we could buy back the dressing table and offer him a reward for any of his troubles.”

Anyone who can help can call Alison on 01539 821402 or Gary on 01539 729689.
