Car Booty

The car boot sale was absolutley heaving with both buyers and sellers this morning. My mum and sister were among the sellers and they made nearly £100 between them so they are very happy.

These are my favourite buys from today.

Red rose jug 50p.

Old metal colander to use as a planter 50p.

New summer bag 50p and a sparkly brooch £1.00.

Another bag, can't resist those polka dots 50p.

These 2 itmes for bought by T for me. Can't tell you how happy that made me.

I've already had a cuppa out of this mug since being home.

This plate is going to go on our dining room table to be used for fruit. T bought it for 20p, he's a bargain hunter already!


  1. I remember my mother having one of those rose jugs when I was young! It looks like a great success was had by all today!
