So this is a bit late this week but here are some of my boot sale finds (there are more buys awaiting a bit of photo action).
We'll start off with a bit of bling:
Better get baking some pies!
Vintage soda syphon - £2. This one is a beauty. I have already owned a few soda syphons but have found new homes for them so this black and gold beauty is staying with me :o) I did see another one on a stall which wasn't nearly as nice as this and the seller wanted £20 for it! No chance sweetheart.
A little bit more Elvis with these two vintage books - £1.
Vintage playing card - 50p a pack. The ones in the silver box are still sealed:
They even have the duty tax wrapper intact around the cards.
I also stumbled upon the stall to end all stalls for kitsch tack-tastic ornaments. The stall holder was selling her late mothers bits and pieces and among them were these:
Bambi deer family - 80p
Little 50's donkey - 20p
How cute is this little vintage pink fish - 10p!
My favourite of the kitsch bunch:
Little bear being bitten by a crab! Love it especially for 30p :o)
Well that's enough buys for this post, hows about a bit of:
Witnessed at a Boot Sale
A rather prim and proper couple in their 50s tutting and complaining about the mud on the car boot field.
A lady wearing a grey jumper picks up a full length grey woollen cardigan
Lady: "How much?"
Lady holds the cardigan up against her "hmmm no I don't think grey is my colour".
A seller shouting out at every female walking past his stall that he has "Salon hair care products going cheap". Each female then seen touching their hair cautiously.
My pet hate - A stall with a price tag on everything and the seller refusing any haggle attempt with the words "i think that's more than a reasonable price".
I'll be back with some more of my boot sales buys soon.
Happy Thursday all
