I always enjoy my car boot shopping trips, but every so often there’ll be an absolutely stand-out Sunday morning when I pick up lots of interesting bits and bobs for totally bargain prices and meet and chat to some really interesting people – and I think ‘now THIS is why I force myself out of bed at silly o’clock every weekend’. This morning, to add to all this joy, the sun was shining, too. Now that’s what I call a good start to Sunday.
Here’s what I bought:
Two brand new, pristine (still with labels attached!) vintage linen table cloths.
Three full size Ren skincare products – £7 the lot.
Miniature boxed Gaultier perfume 50p, huge Elizabeth Arden toner 50p, Space NK body lotion £1.
Gabor wedges £1.50, H&M wedges £1, amazing vintage Carvela (1970s, I think – am I right, anybody?) flat yellow sandals £1, the latter of which I bought from a lovely elderly lady who told me they used to be her favourite shoes in her younger days and they could tell a story or two if they could talk, and that she felt rather sad to be parting with them.
DKNY body lotion £1.50 each, Body Shop giftset 50p.
Monsoon linen skirt £1.50.
Really pretty cut glass Derwent Crystal bowl (boxed) – £2.
Brand new sealed WHSmith Ltd Edition Christmas jigsaw from 2006, 50p.
Gorgeous little girl’s Monsoon party shoes and Clarks boots, 50p each.
Vintage 1960s white vinyl handbag, £1.25. Made in Ireland. And because I know the vintage lovers among you love a little peek at a label, specially for you …
I think Sunday in this household is going to be a quiet one, as I am surrounded by ill people – Ashley and William are both coughing like 40-a-day smokers with advanced emphysema. Best go and put my nurse’s uniform on!
Enjoy the rest of the weekend x
