Bearing in mind the relentless weather we’ve been experiencing down here in the South West, I won’t have a moan that this morning’s car boot sale was full of market traders, with ‘proper’ car booters thin on the ground. I imagine it’s been a tough few months to be a market trader so they’ve gotta take their kicks where they can get ’em, so to speak.
I actually felt much sympathy for all the sellers trying to make a few quid this morning – it was like a wind tunnel inside the multi-storey car park, and bitterly cold. I’m glad to be home, though I must say that the rather fresh start to the day put paid to the slight hangover I was suffering this morning after one too many margaritas whilst watching a mixture of strange winter sports and Kylie’s strange facial fillers on Saturday night TV.
As ever, I managed to bag a few bargains, and here they are:
The White Company Luxury Body Cream, brand new, £1. And a litre bottle of Bailey’s for a fiver – even my hangover was not enough to put me off this huge bargain!
Brand new with tags Vertbaudet girl’s dress – 50p.
2 brand new pairs of M&S heels – £1.50 and £2. Love the eveningy (yeah, I just made up that word) black Autograph ones.
Favourite thing I saw at this morning’s boot sale? A big sign leaning against the stall of one of the regular sellers, saying
“To the man who stole my tarot cards last week: bad karma is coming your way”.
Happy Sunday, whatever your plans are. I don’t have many, but I don’t need tarot cards to tell me there’ll be a bacon sandwich in my not too distant future!
