Can you tell I'm excited?
We'd decided to venture a bit further afield and try a car boot sale in a town that's a wee drive away. The Big Man, in his wisdom, decided to take the country roads and not the motorway. Forty minutes later we finally arrived.(NB the journey home, via the motorway, took all of fifteen minutes. GGRR!)
The car boot was held in the town's market with each seller given a real market stall. It was all rather civilised and not the usual free for all that I am use to. Lots of lovelies but all a bit more pricey than I am use to. So we left empty handed.
But after lunch I decided to brave the wet weather and go to my good old faithful car boot sale. The rain really had driven sellers and buyers away and only the really committed and ardent car booters were there today. (That would be me) There must have been only 10% of the usual number of sellers. More pickings for me. And pickings I had.
A brand new box of Cath Kidston stationery all for only £3. It really is rather gorgeous and I can't wait to write my first letter with it. It's been a while since I wrote an actual letter with a pen and paper, I'm more an email kind of girl, but with this gorgeous stationery who can resist. Now who will I write to?
I did a leap and a dodge to get my slippery hands on this little tea cup. It really is so sweet and divine. I've been on t'internet for most of this afternoon trying to find the maker and how old they are but I'm having no luck at all. Anyone know anything about this mark?
I am a bit of a storage-aholic. I like baskets and jars and boxes and anything else you can stash things in. I spotted a wicker basket to add to my collection. It, again, is brand new and a bit too shiny for my liking. I like a bit of dirt and history. But for £2 I can't really grumble.
So that was my lot...well it wasn't really. I picked something else up for Aija my swap partner for the Faith Hope and Charity Shopping swap. I'd really love to show you it but it would spoil her surprise. Promise I will as soon as she receives it.
