The House & Garden Sale, Mallams, Abingdon, Oxfordshire, 21st May

If you're looking for to enjoy some nostalgic garden games this summer, check out this sale this week. In this auction of over 750 lots, antique wooden skittles, Jacques croquet sets, lawn bowls and an Edwardian archery set are on offer. For the truly energetic, there's even an old iron lawn tennis line marker. Benches, bird baths, urns, planters, staddle stones and even carved elephants also feature. We love the idea of sitting back with a homemade lemonade in a vintage rattan lounge chair, estimated at £100-£200. Estimates range from a few thousand to tens of pounds.
