Last weekend we popped along to a couple of car boot sales for a laid back wander and rummage. As we are new to Northampton, we are still trying to suss out where the best places to go for thrifting are. Unfortunately both car boots were small – it seemed that the incorrect forecast of rain had deterred potential sellers from booting. But we were in need of stretching our legs so we had a wander nevertheless.
Considering how small the car boot sales were it is surprising what the actually came away with.
We found a Johnny Cash record, 8 vintage milk bottles (and 2 coke bottles thrown in for free) 4 vintage tins, a set of utility china plates, a pink glass dish (might be lovely on a dressing table), two vintage camera, two vintage books, a carry on mug (for the boyf) and two more queen mugs for my collection. Amazing!
Some of these will probably be heading for the shop. But the plates are definitely mine (because obviously I need over 30 plates for the two of us).
Have you found any gems at the Car Boot Sales (or charity shop)recently?
