So lets take a look at the new additions. Well it seems that some one is sending me a sign, first the froggy murder print, then the wind in the willows hamper and now:
On the subject of old books I bought this lot:
The next item I bought caused a massive argument between the stall holders. I saw this vintage trinket jar (with mirrored lid) and perfume bottles (complete with stoppers -eeeee!):
I went in for the grab before anyone else spied them and asked the young guy on the stall how much for the set, he said £2. Well I tried to keep cool but inside I was squealing. His mother then called him to the front on the van and they started having a heated discussion while pointing at the set. I had my £2 coin in my hot little hand just wanting to pay and run but was looking like I wasn't getting these for £2. The guy then came back and said "my mother wants a lot more for them but as I've said £2 you can have them for that". Well the coin was in his hand like lightening and I was busy stuffing these into one of the pillow cases (aka swag bag) I bought. The mother then came strutting over and I was like 'run run run' so I grabbed my bags and as I was darting off I heard the young guy say "well that will teach you for selling my stuff too cheap, now we're even" eek! I wouldn't want to be in their house that evening sheesh!
I also got 5 jars which are now storing my buttons, I've only photographed 3:
Now what you've all be waiting for ....
Witnessed At A Boot Sale
I see so many crazy and amusing things at the booty that it would be rude not to share.
The boot sale I go to has its regulars (me being one of them) but the most noticed of us is a lady who rides a mobility scooter complete with African Grey Parrot. I kid you not the parrot hangs onto her keys and takes the whole boot sale in his stride. I was behind her on a tricky narrow bit full of people and the parrot said "A bit of a Squeeze" and she didn't pat an eyelid just replied "yes it is" - me and the lady beside me were open mouthed in amazement - clever little bird! I wonder if knows how to haggle - who's going to say no to a parrot wanting a bit of chintz for a knock down price.
The second happening which amused me greatly was an eastern European lady looking at a box of breast pads:
Lady- "have they been opened?"
Stall holder - "no they are brand new"
Lady - "oh I'll leave them then"
The last thing that made me chuckle was a grown man sniffing a handbag - getting a proper eyes closed lung full of sweaty plastic. I think he was using the guise that he was checking for leather but I think that bag just made his day...
Well done to those that got to the end of this post lol. I've also seen today that I've reached that magic 100 followers, thank you all and I am in awe that you all read my blog! I'm off to sort out a giveaway so watch this space as will announce it in a few days.
