I also need to say a HUGE thank you to Kylie Lucy violet vintage who sent me this beautiful ballerina hair brush which I loved so much on her blog:
Now for this weeks installment of
Witnessed at a Bootsale
Lady in front of me talking to her friend : "I don't know why those foreign people think they have to knock the price down when they know they are getting a bargain"
Friend: "I know its so cheeky"
They stop at the next stall
Lady "How much for the skirt Love?"
Stallholder : "£2 its silk"
Lady: "oh no I'll give you £1"....
Stallholder: "Freshly baked cupcakes £1 each"
Customer: "Were you up baking them this morning?"
Stallholder: "No I made them yesterday morning"
I also saw a young guy sorting through a pile of clothes on a lady's stall, he then grabbed a bin bag and tipped the contents out to have a look and a huge pile of tiny thongs and bras went flying out on top of the pile of clothes. Both the stallholder and the young man looked embarrassed. I was just thinking who on earth wants to buy this lady's old thongs - eugh! (Maybe the fetish market is big on the bootsale scene lol).
Thats all for the boot sale booty!
