Well my lovelies its time to share my finds from last week.
First I need to thank the wonderful Loo for sending me this awesome sugar skull felt brooch:
Its a beaut! I'm a total nut for sugar skulls. It also came wrapped in a red hair scarf, which has also had an outing. Thanks Loo, love them!
I found this vintage fruit bowl and dessert dishes at the boot sale:
They were a bargain for £1.50 the set and had come from the sellers late grandmother.
And yes I'm guilty of buying another one of these bad boys (number 4!):
Who'd have thought I'd find two Fortnum and Mason hampers in the last two weeks! This was haggled down to £4, the seller was a hard nut to crack ;o)
Bird tile coasters - £2.00 from the charity shop.
Now you know I love my kitsch-tastic deer, check out these two beauties:
Not one but TWO Hornsea Fauna deer double vases! I've wanted some of these for ages but every time any come into the charity shops near me they put a stupid price tag on them. So I was excited to see them at the boot sale, they were however on a 'collectors' stall so I knew I wasn't going to get lucky with a cheap as chips price. I got my haggle hat on again and managed to sweet talk these down to £3 each.
Now its that time of the week for....
Witnessed at a Boot Sale
While queueing to get into the boot sale (yup we have to queue before 11am) the middle aged woman in front of me opened her purse to get her 50p entrance fee and out flew a tube of Canesten thrush cream. Picking it up from the floor I heard her say to her mate "Ooh that reminds me to get another tube of this, I'll be 'aving to nip to the loo for a scratch".
A rusty old racing bicycle marked up at £200 - i don't know about you but I always carry £200 to the boot sale...
And my favourite stall of the day was a couple who had packed up all their crap into baskets and tried palming them off as "Hampers" for £8 a pop. It will not surprise you that their stall was still full when I left.
That's all from me folks, will be doing my rounds catching up with you all so make sure you have the kettle on and a slice of cake waiting for me :o)
