Woke up to a bee-yoo-ti-ful cloudless blue sky (and boy, it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to say THAT!) at 6.30 am. The boot sale was at the race course today, and it was HUGE – in fact, I didn’t even get round it all. I’m not feeling great – have had an on/off headache for a couple of days, and have an upset tummy this morning. I also look very pale and washed out, do hope I’m not sickening for something. Anyway, here’s today’s rundown:
Big bag of stickle bricks – 50p – these always sell well
Bargain of the day – gorgeous Molton Brown boxed set of hand lotion and hand wash – £2.50. I’ve just checked, and this set retails for £28, and one recently sold on Ebay for £18 (without the box). I shall be making a nice profit on this, I think!
Laura Ashley top, 50p to sell
Merrell kids shoes – £1 to sell
Hugo Boss body lotion, 50p to sell
Next body set – £1 – possible Xmas pressie
Gucci After Shave – brand new £4 – total bargain, as this is Ashley’s fave after shave at the moment. Bought from a lovely young couple who are emigrating to Australia – I felt very envious of them (I have a hankering to emigrate to Aus, but it will never happen – couldn’t leave my family, and we’re too damn old now – Aus wouldn’t want us!).
Dr Lewinn’s eye cream – 50p to sell – don’t know much about this brand, but it seems to go well on eBay – I’ve just checked.
Decleor cleanser – £1 to sell
French Connection dress, which is actually a pale lemon yellow, for some reason the photo’s taken the colour out of it, £1.50 to sell.
Today’s shoes – brand new kids Clarks £1.50, River Island brown heels 50p, Voodoo Dolls wedges £1.
I also bought an EXTREMELY muddy pair of Adidas football boots for 50p, actually in great nick under all the mud, for William – he’s grown out of his old ones.
A successful morning’s bootying!
