Boot Sale Buys

Yesterdays Boot Sale was amazing, it was so full they had to stop letting sellers in as there was no room. The other plus is that it starts at 11am so no early starts to get the goodies.  There was so many people however that I didn't get a good look at all the stalls but I've seen some on the stall holders week in week out so I know if they have the kind of items I want to look at.  So lets get started on my finds.

First off a set of 4 Cherry B vintage glasses:


I've seen these go for upwards of £10 on ebay so pleased to bag a set of 4 for £1. 

Still on the theme of glasses:

They have a gilt edge and I'm guessing that they are 1950's but i could be wrong, i couldn't find anything like them on my google search. I found the set of 5 in a grubby box under the stall and I got them for £2.  I didn't even haggle as thought that was a fab price.

Next up retro orange juice jug:

Yes another Jug but I've wanted one of these vintage glass juice jugs for ages!  Just need to open a  B&B now with all my jugs, Pyrex and bedspreads. I got this from a collectors stall so I was expecting him to put a hefty price on it but I got it for £1 - result!

Next purchase was this vintage apron:

                                              

I especially like 'A cock Bird on Gorse' and i must admit the Yellow Hammer male is indeed a handsome bird , haha they just don't make them like they used to *wink*. Cost me 30p, cant argue with that.

I also bought the next three items from the same stall:

Vintage mirror compact.
Pack of two self sticking boarders - will find something crafty to do with these:

A Royal Doulton milk jug:

And guess what - they were all 30p each too.  I'm not sure the stall holder was completely with it or was handling stolen goods as the doulton jug alone is worth loads more.  It was a pay and run moment. :o)



Painted apple basket with foldable handle - £1. I dont know how I ever lived without an apple basket before lol.


Cath K-esque double duvet cover and two pillow cases - £2.



Two union Jack scarfs - ideal for the royal wedding :o)  Bargain for 50p each and the silk one will make an ideal head scarf for my land girl look.

Well thats enough bargains (or tat depending on your likes lol) but I did buy more...oh yes... but I'm sure you all need a break from the computer screen after this post so I'll add them to my next post, and I'll be adding the new feature 'Witnessed at a Boots Sale' - exciting huh!  Dont get eye strain now ;o)

Happy Monday All

  36. Scarlett, I think you're near to me...South Coast, within reach of Marwell? Where's the car boot that doesn't start til 11? Also, I thought of you Saturday morning - discovered a regular sale and in the back room were at least 5 picnic hampers and assorted baskets for nothing almost. Tell you what, swap you your car boot details for my Saturday sale lol!
