I had a lovely stroll around Stickney Car Boot sale this morning, which was quite a large one considering the overcast sky and the predicted rain forecast. Luckily it didn't rain and we had a lovely stroll chatting to my Mum as we wandered. We also bumped into my niece and her family and caught up with all the family news so that was quite nice.
I got really lucky with a big bag of apples for 50p that since arriving home has been made into 4 bags of apple sauce for the freezer.
I also bought carrots for 50p from a man who had surplus from his allotment so that was a good find and enough there to freeze some for stews as well.
I got a big bag of kindling for £2 perfect for the stove and I thought a really good price.
10 die cast vehicles for £1 was next on the list, perfect to top the car box up as the Grandchildren take a few home every time they visit.
We stumbled across a stall selling craft things that had once been sold in a craft shop that had stopped trading, a very busy stall as you can imagine. I managed to secure some yarn and buttons, I know I didn't need either but (there is always a BUT) the price was too good to walk away from. The yarn was 50p per ball. Could you have walked away?
I then paid 50p for 3 odd balls of grey Aran...bargain!
The buttons were Minnie Mouse wooden buttons that I fell in love with and perfect to use on a red cushion which is what I have in mind for the red wool.
Finally some Christmas paper chains, perfect for the Grandchildren to do if visiting near Christmas and at a bargain price of 10p.
All in all some wonderful bounty, some wonderful company and a healthy stroll, what could be better?
See you soon.
