Sunday Car Booty – The Totally Excellent Edition

I always enjoy my car boot shopping trips, but every so often there’ll be an absolutely stand-out Sunday morning when I pick up lots of interesting bits and bobs for totally bargain prices and meet and chat to some really interesting people – and I think ‘now THIS is why I force myself out of bed at silly o’clock every weekend’.  This morning, to add to all this joy, the sun was shining, too.  Now that’s what I call a good start to Sunday.

Here’s what I bought:

Two brand new, pristine (still with labels attached!) vintage linen table cloths.

Three full size Ren skincare products – £7 the lot.

Miniature boxed Gaultier perfume 50p, huge Elizabeth Arden toner 50p, Space NK body lotion £1.

Gabor wedges £1.50, H&M wedges £1, amazing vintage Carvela (1970s, I think – am I right, anybody?) flat yellow sandals £1, the latter of which I bought from a lovely elderly lady who told me they used to be her favourite shoes in her younger days and they could tell a story or two if they could talk, and that she felt rather sad to be parting with them.

DKNY body lotion £1.50 each, Body Shop giftset 50p.

Monsoon linen skirt £1.50.

Really pretty cut glass Derwent Crystal bowl (boxed) – £2.

Brand new sealed WHSmith Ltd Edition Christmas jigsaw from 2006, 50p.

Gorgeous little girl’s Monsoon party shoes and Clarks boots, 50p each.

Vintage 1960s white vinyl handbag, £1.25.  Made in Ireland.  And because I know the vintage lovers among you love a little peek at a label, specially for you …

I think Sunday in this household is going to be a quiet one, as I am surrounded by ill people – Ashley and William are both coughing like 40-a-day smokers with advanced emphysema.  Best go and put my nurse’s uniform on!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend x

    You have some fab stuff there, I love finding great bargains and especially love the chat with sellers xx

  6. I am a real table cloth freak. I just love beautifully set tables and the cloth is so much a part of that. I can see you had great fun. The little girl’s shoes are pretty.
