First off a vintage glass dressing table trinket pot:
Another apothecary Jar:
Another thing I don't think I've mentioned is my love of scarves, I have a good couple of cases full but I always buy them as you can get them cheap and they have so many uses. One sort I am drawn to is the vintage 'souviner scarf' the ones brought back as a trip memory or an unwanted gift. I haven't seen any for a while but got lucky on two separate stalls today:
I came across a young man on a stall who was selling his nan's old bits and pieces - I love these stalls as you are always guaranteed to get a good price as they don't know how fabulous some of the old trinkets are. Well I zoomed in to grab this little beauty:
Also from the same stall I got a real kitsch find:
I also found this Babycham glass on the same table:
I bought a lot of books (all for 10p!) mainly for my son. One which I had to have was a little wonder from my own school days:
I also found a knitting book:
Who wouldn't want to make a knitted bottle cover - hahaha! Come on those of you who can knit - this should be the top of your projects list *wink*.
Now for the highlight of the week:
Witnessed at a Boot Sale:
Lady: How much for the tea light holder?
Lady: I'll take that thanks (offers 50p coin)
Stallholder takes coin but lady remains at stall
Lady: Can you wrap it?
Stallholder: This isn't Harvey Nicks love!
On the topic of bagging Boot sale goods I also saw a middle aged lady with the biggest (empty) Ikea bag on her shoulder who kicked up a stink at not being given a bag by the stall holder for the jumper she just bought! I of course always carry extra bags lol.
The last bit of fun was over a vase:
Man: I'll take the blue vase please
Stallholder to her son: Can you grab a carry bag for the Turquoise vase please.
Man: Oh is it turquoise blue, well I only want a blue vase so I'll leave it.
Hope you've all had a cracking weekend.
