Car boot bonanza





car boot buys

                                          a cute little tin and for 20p who could resist, not sure
                                         what to use it for yet but will soon find something to fill it
                                         A pretty little tray, another impulse buy but just loved it
                                         so had to have it, another snip at £1

.                                        This is a very very pretty dish, Royal Worcester so a
                                         real bargain at £1, I already have one in the poppy
                                         design, they are now sitting side by side on a cabinet
                                       
                                         Now I am feeling generous, they wanted £1 on the
                                         cancer charity stall and I gave them £2, really wanted the
                                         handles but now I  want to try crazy quilting will save
                                         the fabric too.

                                       
                                         This was my useful buy,will use it for work in hand
                                         only £2 and I put some of my clothes in it for coming
                                         home and the fragiles went in the case.Wrapped it up
                                         in a large plastic bag with tape and had one handle
                                         sticking out to carry it by, worked a treat.


                                         a small bundle of linen threads with a bit of string, no
                                         doubt they will come in handy.


                                         How could I have nearly forgotten this, a crazy quilt,
                                         man selling it knew nothing about it but wanted £4
                                         I came home and naughty girl put it in the washer and
                                         it is now looking very sorry for itself. Think all I can
                                         do is use bits when I do attempt my crazy quilt.
                                         Unphotographed is a book, the encyclopedia of
                                        embroidery techniques by Pauline Brown for £1
                                        Think I had a very fruitful day and will go again if
                                        and when I next get to Buckingham.

Love all your purchases Margaret, especially the china, congratulations. I have the book you've bought [I think], and find it extremely useful. I think I bought mine at a book throw out years ago. Lovely to see your bargains. Cheers.

Oooh, I do love a bargain and you have done well. I think I also have that book - I have so many now.

The royal worcester dish looks lovely.

Sounds like you had such a nice time! We don't have car boot sales here but lots of garage sales. I haven't been to one for a couple years but seeing your neat purchases certainly makes me want to go. I especially like the cat tin and tray. :)
