It threatened rain yesterday morning but even that wouldn't have kept me away from going to the boot sale. It did however keep the sellers away from the booty instead, the turn out was pretty poor. Nevertheless I still found some vintage treasures to bring home.
So lets begin...
Little cut glass decanter, ideal for storing hand wash in my bathroom - £1.
Two vintage blackbird pie funnels - £1
Large glass decanter...
You know I'm partial to a bit of wicker so couldn't resist this little beauty...
...to store wine in. Bought from a rather charming little old lady for the grand sum of £1.
East of India wooden hearts - 50p
I then spotted something which I would never have thought I'd find at a boot sale:
Only a tube of 1950s Immac hair removing cream!
That was all my booty buys from yesterday but I did stop off at the supermarket and buy a magazine I haven't bought before:
Totally seduced by the 'Vintage Issue' cover and oh my I'm not disappointed - its a fabulous issue with loads of yummy 50s interior design ideas and a whole section on vintage shops. Have any of you read this issue yet?
Now that time of the week for:
Witnessed at a Boot Sale
Man picks up a large glass vase from a stall
Man: "How much mate?"
Stallholder: "Yes £12, I was asking £15 for it earlier, it bought it in Paris"
Man:"So what you wanting me to cover your airfare then!"
Stallholder in stunned silence and man stomps off.
Elderly couple selling Durex play stimulation gels *shudder*
A fabulous gay couple trying to flog about 10 male mannequin body forms with rather large 'bulges'. While chuckling to myself the tallest of the two comments with a wink "If only honey hey".
Happy Monday All
