I bumped into a friend at this morning’s car boot sale, whose first words to me were ‘God, it’s RUBBISH this morning, isn’t it?’
‘You took the words right out of my mouth’, I replied.
I think the sun comes out, the great British public think ‘wahey, I’m gonna make some money selling off some of my
knackered, dirty old shit quality possessions, let’s pack up the car and do a car boot sale’.
Yep, although it was the biggest car boot sale of the year so far, it was indeed RUBBISH, and I came home with considerably less than I bought two weeks ago when it was lashing down with rain and a quarter of the size it was today!
Oh well, that’s the way of the world with second-hand shopping, isn’t it? Half the fun is never knowing what you’re going to find. Not much, as it turned out today.
New Look wedges £1, kids Clarks boots 75p
Evans tunic top £2
Today’s slim pickings were somewhat made up for by my Friday afternoon charity shop finds in Beaminster, where we went for a night away with friends. I came upon a fab charity shop which, although expensive by my usual standards, had some great stock. I came away with three pairs of brand new Hotter shoes for £7.50 each, and best of all, a pristine Armani suit, which would cost the best part of £1,000 new, for £45. I had hoped it would fit Will, but it’s too big at the moment. He’s very keen on it, though, and it’s a classic style, so I’ll keep it for him to grow into.
I’m sure there were lots more bargains to be had as well, but unfortunately the friends we were with don’t ‘get’ second-hand shopping, so my time was somewhat limited.
The weather forecast is for lots of sun over the course of the next week, which is lovely news. I’m planning a quiet day today, though, as I’m battling a very nasty headache, which came on in bed last night. I took some Migraleve around midnight, but by 6, it was back with a vengeance. It’s eased a bit since I got up, but not completely gone, and unfortunately it feels like it might be one of those two-or-three-day headaches I sometimes get.
Have a great Sunday everybody, enjoy the sunshine. x
