1950's french decanter, not sure if this is for oil or vinegar or another pourable liquid but who cares - I just love the look of it and it was £1!
1950's Puzzles - both for 80p. The guy who sold them to me told me that these were played with by himself and his brother when they were little. I love that the came from the original owner and not a house clearance or trader stall.
Pyrex jug - probably 1960s or 1970s, pleased to have got this one for £1.
Little blue glass apothecary jar - bought from a little old lady who told me she kept her cotton wool in it for years. Bought this little lovely for £1 and a smile.
Poodle tea tray!! lol - how could I leave a tray with two poodles with a calculating look in their eyes! Love it especially as it was 50p.
Vintage curtain fabric, there is about 4 meters of this - got the lot for £1.
Another wacky buy - cowboy boot beer glass. Probably would hold half a pint but it made me smile so will probably now be a juice glass - I bought it from a guy raising money for Cancer Research for 50p. He told me that he had raised 4k over the last year for cancer research - what a star!
Huge Dorothy Perkins silk scarf - not vintage but amazing anyway and a steal for £1.50, it still has its tag attached.
1970s storage jars - 50p each. I remember my mum had a set of these when I was growing up and she laughed when she saw I had bought a couple.
One for the royal wedding - Sandringham tea tray, ideal for when posh people come to tea *wink*.
1950s Beaded purse - 50p!
Vintage face powder compact with mirror - still has original liner :o) Bought this with the beaded purse for 50p also - again much delight and a pay and run moment.
And of course couldn't come home without the usual Pyrex casserole dish - check this one out:
I'm very tempted to make a tiny casserole in it and give it to hubby for dinner for a laugh. I got this little gem for 50p :o)
Witnessed at a Boot Sale
The first boot sale funny actually involved me. As its such a fight at this boot sale I was squeezing past a lady to get through the bottle neck of people when i felt my bag tug. I've got a Cath Kidston Satchel which I wear across the body, well when I felt the bag tug and heard a lady squeal I turned round to be faced with a very surprised Polish lady with her hand of her butt cheek. It suddenly sunk in what had happened - the buckle of my satchel had caught on the bum pocket of her jeans giving it a tug, she thought I had grabbed her bum! I apologised saying my bag had caught her jeans but she just smiled at me and chuckled, looks like I may have come home with a Polish lady as well as my bargains! I quickly made my getaway.
I also saw a stall which was selling autographed sporting memorabilia. A Thai lady was picking up the signed caps and putting them on her sons head:
Stall Holder: "Can you not put those on your son"
Thai Lady grabs another cap and put it on her sons head
Stall Holder: "I said can you not put that on you sons head" snatches the cap from the lady "this is signed by a golf pro and costs £50"
Thai lady: "50p?" she goes to take the cap from his hand
Stall Holder "No £50! You're not going to buy it for £50 are you so leave them alone"
Thai Lady "£50?? No I give you £1"
Stallholder "Are you taking the piss?"
Thai Lady "£1" (At this point I was admiring her haggling technique)
Stallholder: "No its £50!" Stall holder then takes the cap and puts it in his car.
Thai Lady : "How much for these two" picking up 2 more caps.
Stallholder: "They are not for sale..."
The last thing that happened was me again, there was a crowd around a new table so I peered in and saw a vintage Kelly style bag - I picked it up and then suddenly got my hand slapped by the lady next to me "Mine" she barked! First time since I was 5 year old that I've had my hand slapped! lol.
Happy Monday all.
