Ok so I'm a day late with the Sunday round-up, yesterday was just a busy busy day and then I found out it was free listing weekend on eBay - that wiped out my evening in the attempt to off load some clutter and hoping that the lovely buyers on eBay will love my quirky stuff as much as me....fingers crossed the eBay gods will be smiling on me :o)
We had sunshine yesterday morning so I was expecting the Boot sale to be chock-a-block and I wasn't disappointed, it was heaving. Literally it was each bargain hunter for themselves and I lost count of the number of toe stamps I endured and the elbows were extra sharp.
I didn't come away with as much as my usual outings but what I got I'm very pleased with. First off the bat was this jar:
I also found this cut glass trinket dish on the same stall:
As you know I'm a fabric-oholic and I cant walk past a pile of fabric without having a look, curtains seem to be my latest finds, I picked up 3 pairs yesterday at the sale:
I also picked up this Crabtree and Evelyn 2004 collectors mug made by Masons Ironstone:
On thing I have noticed at the Car boot Sale recently is the surge of stalls selling cupcakes - yesterday on the upper level alone there were 4 separate stall selling cupcakes and each competing with each other (lots of scribbling out of prices on their signs). I didn't see one person buying a cupcake or indeed eating one at any stage of the boot sale crawl. They did look lovely and a lot of time had obviously gone into preparing them (and I do love cupcakes) but I'd be damned if I was going to pay £10 for a pitch to sit there for 4 hours staring at my pile of cupcakes that no one is buying :o)
Happy Monday All
Linking to Thrift Share Monday :o)
