Despite being away for the weekend, Amanda (my SIL and another avid car booter) and I headed off from the hotel early yesterday morning to to see what the local boot sale had to offer.
The short answer was: not very much! It was very small, with only a handful of sellers, and Amanda and I were the only two buyers there at 8.15 am. Nevertheless, I picked up a few bits for resale, so it wasn’t an entirely wasted journey.
Principles suede boots, almost new, £2.50
I’ve also picked up some good bits and bobs in charity shops over the last couple of weeks:
Couple of books – Rachel’s Holiday which I’ve read twice before, but it’s my favourite Marian Keyes novel, and I quite fancy reading it again; and The Sunflower Forest by Torey Hayden – I really enjoyed all her autobiographical books, but this is her first novel, so I wonder what I’ll make of it. 50p each.
Dress by Madonna for H&M -£4.
Gents’ Turnbull & Asser shirt £3 (very nice profit to be made reselling this, I think), and M&S cropped trousers (can’t remember price!)
First full week of the Easter hols, and the weather is due to take a bit of a downturn by the looks of the forecast. But Will has lots of plans with friends for the next few days, so we shan’t be scratching round for things to do, which is always good.
