I always hear of the bargains to be had at car boot sales but never normally have time to go, especially since Rob and I have joined the gym!
Well with it being bank holiday weekend i have had a bit more time to do "me" things and yesterday i took my self off to 2 car boots...which i must say were pretty rubbish! Think this was because i went too late, i like to get there first thing really but this was more like lunchtime and with the grey weather people were packing up early! Anyway, the embellies above were Sundays find at 50p each, i didn't think it worthied a blog post of its own so was hoping for some more treasure today!!
And i got it! It was a special bank holiday boot just about 5 min from me, i was there for 8.30!
I knew it was going to be a good day when i pulled up to pay the 50p entrance fee and the man taking the money gave molly (who had clambered onto my lap to sniff from the open window) a really good fuss, i put the 50p in his hand and he dropped it back into my lap and said shhh! That brightened my day!!
First up is a load...12 to be precise, canvas bags, they were brand new and should have been 50p each but i offered £5.00 for the lot, i am not a good haggler but was chuffed with this, i plan to decorate them for my stall at parents evening with felt and fabric flowers - they have ikea lables in them but i have not seen them in ikea so they may be old stock, but they look lovely and strong (sorry for the naff pics!)
Next up was a huge pile of sheet music, i love this for die cutting and my mate Helen had given me a pile already but i had to get this as i may never see it again, i had only intended to grap a book or 2 but when i asked how much the man said i could have it all for £2!!! well it would have been rude not too and he even kept it for me to collect it at the end as i had my hands full with molly and it weighed a ton!
