Ohmygawd I cannot believe how freaking long it has been since I last did a Car Boot Finds post. ARGH! I’ve missed it so darn much it’s unreal.
But instead of whinging about my lack of thrifting over the past six months, let’s celebrate that I am back in the game.
Oh yeah. Give me some vintage goodness.
Sooooo…. last weekend I was up in Lincolnshire for a family kiddies birthday party and we made the most of our weekend there by popping down to local car boot sale for a very chilly but bracing walk around both the little field and the (thank god) indoor area.
I don’t seem to have lost my thrifting touch either. I picked up a few goodies for the total princely sum of £5.
First of all, I found this awesome first aid kit. It’s a black metal rectangular tin with a metal slide clasp. On the lid it simply states, First Aid Kit. And inside there are all the original products from the 1970s. There are original Johnson & Johnson bandages, a box of Elastoplasts, Boots bandages, a Band Aid, some glass eye wash baths and there’s even a 1970s health and safety handbook inside. It’s an utterly fascinating piece of medical social history right there in a tin.
Next up I found this collection of vintage floral glasses. I couldn’t resist that deep red colour. There are a range of sizes in this collection and the pattern is kind of dorky, but I like it. The boyf is not so keen. But I think they might be on the right side of kitsch. Who knows?! I like them.
And finally, I stumbled across a couple of old vintage glass bottles languishing at the bottom of a box of junk at one table. They will go nicely with the rest of my collection (seen here and here) which I love to use a vases for my flowers.
And there we have it. I am back in the thrifting game!
