Car Boot Sale Booty!

Its Sunday and the heavens have opened - it has literally rained non stop today but even a bit of the wet stuff cant put me off the Sunday boot sale trip. I'm lucky that the boot sale I go to (when its not boot sale season) is in an undercover car park. However there is a top level which is outside and the poor sods that didn't get there early enough were having to sell their wears in the pouring rain on top of a cozy and dry car park! They must have been cursing the people who were selling like hot cakes in the lower level while all their own good were soaking wet - no one really is going to want to rummage through that cardboard box of sopping wet clothes while getting drenched themselves.

But it seems rain = fabulous finds for me! I have bought lots of lovely items today that I am pleased as punch to have found but I haven't had much time today to photograph them all so I've got enough to keep me going for a couple of blog entries yet!

The first find was a Royal Albert bone china telephone, the design is country roses and I just loved it as soon as I saw it on the stall.
It needs a good clean up but I've plugged it into the phone socket this evening and it works - hooray!  So chuffed at finding this and with a bit of haggling I picked it up for £4.

The next find today was this adorable children's book. I'm not sure of the age, no year date inside the book but I would have thought it was 1950s:

Its going to look lovely in my little boys nursery and cost me £1. Another bargain today was this cruet duo, as you know I'm a sucker for floral and these were so pretty that I snapped them up as soon as I zoomed in on them on the stall:
Would you believe that I paid £1.50 for the pair! Its the little things that make me smile :o)

That's all for tonight and I'll show the rest of my little treasure finds tomorrow, better charge up my camera battery lol!

Hope you all had a happy weekend and Happy Valentines Day for tomorrow :o)
