Abloom with colour and classics, Bluff was no novel port town at the weekend.

The Lands End Garden Club held its annual flower show, which coincided with Bluff Promotions' second-hand-book sale, bringing bookworms and green-thumbs flocking.

Bluff Promotions chairman Steve Mitchell said the book sale was a success. "It's been really good, a steady traffic right through until the end," he said.

Bluff Promotions officer Lindsay Beer said people lined up on Saturday morning waiting for doors to open. "It was extremely busy at the start of the day and then a steady stream all day yesterday."

The final total made from the book sale would not be known until midweek but all profits would be used for Bluff projects, he said.

The few spits of rain did not deter keen flower and garden enthusiasts, with big crowds attending the Lands End flower show.
