Car Booty Looty!!!

Yesterday Helen (it's all fiddle fart) and I went to a massive car boot just up the road from me, I left to pick her up at 7:30 and we came out of the car boot at about 11:30 - boy we did some waling it was huge!!
But i haggled my way to a few bargains and have taken some piccies!
Above some coasters that i want to alter - 20p

Keyring blanks 10 for £1

Childrens summer dresses that i wanted for the gingham fabric!

Some other garments that i wanted for the fabric

I have already chopped up some of the fabric, then it is winging its way to the washing machine

next up a huge tub of snowflake sequins - 50p!!
2 more coaster sets - £1
and helens crafty find, 2 massive rolls of vintagey coloured gingham ribbon for the pricely sum of 50p!

and lastly another crafty find from helen, we had one each so there was no fighting!! only 75p think it will be a summer holiday project!
I got a couple of other things but was too tired to take pics!!

What a haul, glad there was no squabbling.

Great idea to get the summer dresses and other garments for the fabric.

Coasters look fab, and the keyrings. Such great prices too.

Love the vintagey coloured ribbon, and the wooden house.

The 'fantastic duo' was at work yesterday - you both have such vision and wonderful ideas. I shall look foward to seeing the items revamped and 'upcycled' - I think that is what I mean lol!!!!! x

Some lovely bargains! I love the house shaped tray, and how much ribbon did Helen get??
Cant wait to see what you do with the gingham, I have loads in my stash and no idea what to do with it.
