Car Boot Finds Pt 8

This weekend I went to visit the old dear and took a family trip to Hatton Country Park to see Father Christmas, more on that in a later post. More importantly I dragged the whole family to a local Car Boot Sale for more bargain hunting. My 6-year-old sister dutifully held my hand as I rummaged through the stalls, patient with the promise of hot dog at the end.
And a great rummage was had indeed, within 30 seconds of arriving I found a 1960’s Tan Leather Jewellery Box and went on to find lots of loveliness. I think my favourite is the Victorian Egg Timer Set, it is truly fascinating.

And this is only half the stash, my camera died before I finished taking pictures. So you’ll have to wait for the next part to see further rummage finds that include a Victorian Thermometer and a vintage camera.


  1. Wow! Love it! You've managed to find some real treats here, I've not been to a car boot sale in sooo long… I think it's about time I went along to one, to see what little treasures I can find!

  2. Yes, it was the one in Warkwickshire. I went to the Arrow Car Boot Sale in Redditch. It wasn't the best but I did snag some great finds.
