I had not planned to go Car Booting this weekend. I was pretty wiped out after the Midlands Blogger Meet, so I imagined I might enjoy that elusive lie-in that often goes amiss on my weekends. Unfortunately for my tiredness, but fortunately for my thrifting appetite, my Mum woke me up, pointed to the sky and announced that we should grab my Grannie and pop down to the Car Boot Sale.
So I duly clambered out of bed, threw on some rags and we trotted off to the little Car Boot around the corner. But our usual Car Boot was nowhere to be seen. Instead we followed tiny signs of promise along meandering country roads until we almost gave up for lost…and then we found it. A new Car Boot Sale!
Alas, the returns were not as fruitful as one would normally hope, but that’s just the way the thrifting cookie crumbles. The only purchase I made was this delightful white and gold tea set, complete no less!, for a couple of quid. Bargain.
What awesome thrifty finds have you found lately? I do love to hear about a good bargain or two.
