After an unprecedented five weeks without going to a car boot sale, this morning I forced myself out of bed and out of the house before it was even light! I actually dreamed about going to a car boot sale last night, so obviously it was on my mind! I also dreamed about a beautiful holographic copper nail polish shade a bit like a tiger’s eye. I know, I’m odd.
There were a lot of sellers obviously having a big clear out of toys, baby stuff and Christmas decs before December arrives later on this week, and I managed to pick up a few bargains.
Shoes (surely not, I hear you all cry!) – £1.50 each for the two on the left, and £2 for the Faith wedges.
White Stuff kaftan, white linen tops one each from Next and Per Una, Monsoon Double layer top – all 50p each.
Brand new M&S nursery curtains . £11 for the two.
Crabtree & Evelyn giftset 50p, Benefit products all brand new £15 for 6.
More shoes! – £1 for the brand new black patent heels on the left (Evans wide fit), £2.50 for the boxed Esprit Mary Janes in the middle (rather like them, might keep them), and £1.50 for the boxed Faith mules.
Another vintage wooden tennis racquet (why are 90% of tennis racquets are listed as rackets on eBay. I thought a racket was a nasty noise, not an implement for a ball game. I could be wrong – it would seem so, in fact.) And a brand new cross stitch kit £1.
The sun is shining and it’s still quite warm – am I alone in wanting some colder weather so it feels a bit more like winter? Will is off to a friend’s today for Sunday lunch and a trip to the cinema, and my plans include nothing more taxing than pottering, reading and watching TV. Lovely!
