It has been a bit of a dry year for me in terms of Car Boot Sales. For one reason or another I haven’t attended as many as I’d like. And I have found that the local Car Boot Sales in and around Northampton are lacking in both scale and quality. So when we popped back to my Mum’s briefly last weekend we took the opportunity to visit one of my favourite Car Boot Sales in Studley. Sadly though, it was not on. Grr…what’s a bit of frost between friends? The one in Bursledon down south was on all winter. Outside. We had to wear 5 layers of clothing to wander around it, but it was still amazing. Anyways, luckily I had one of my little sisters with me and she reminded me of another Car Boot Sale in Redditch so we headed over there.
It was generally slim pickings but I’m rather pleased with these little finds. I just wish I had bought more vintage dresses from this stall. This red and white polka dot dress was only£3 and there were loads more there on the rail. But I was having one of my ‘oh-my-god-I’m-too-broke-eek’ moments and failed to snap up the vintage potential. I also missed out on a super cute Hawaiian Alarm Clock because I couldn’t be bothered to haggle. (Note to self: get the bacon bap in ya sooner!). Do you ever have days when you just don’t have the energy to really argue? That was me. I’ve actually been a bit poorly for the last few days, so I’m going to blame that.
So we picked up a vintage dress for £3. It’s 100% polyester and my hair is red (clash-alert!). So I’m thinking about layering it up this season.
Then we found a rather well-kept edition of Gray’s Anatomy. It’s the 1978 edition.
And finally we found this vintage edition of Operation, one of my childhood favourite games. My little sister was so excited by this purchase and then when we got home realised that it took some old school battery type. So now we need to work out an adapter or something. Oh well, not bad for £1.
