Car Boot Treasure

First of all I would like to say a big thank you for all of your comments on my recent posts and also to welcome my new followers.  Yours comments are always appreciated, any questions I always try to get back to you personally.

The weather was looking a little overcast so not too sure if it was going to be a good day for car booting, but we decided to take the chance, I am really glad that we did.

We managed to get some glove puppets for the grandchildren for £1.

Children's books for 25p each, I say this every time I buy books, it never ceases to amaze me how little value is placed on a book.
£4 secured me a whole box of dressing up clothes, including masks and wigs.

Finally we managed to get our next project for a mere £20.  A solid wood piece of furniture for a bedroom, cupboard with drawers.  Watch this space.
All in all a very successful walk around the boot sale.  Anybody else manage to get some bargains?
See you soon.


  1. I love a good bargain, you did well there x

  2. Looks like you found some great bargains. Love the puppets! Have a great weekend. Heather

  3. Oh my word you certainly did well!

    I love how you say "car boot" over across the pond. Though I drive a Mini Cooper so we go motoring and use the car boot often. Just trying to keep it groovy, heh heh.

    I found a ton of treasures yesterday too - must be that time of year! I can't take pics though b/c I had to lend my daughter (the one who just had that birthday) my camera, as she is going to a fun event and flew out of town this morning.

    Can't WAIT to see how you fix up that neat cabinet. It is an excellent shape, whoo hoo! Hugs.

  4. PS Hey, Lorraine, did you know you still have word verification on?

    You may find you get a lot more comments if you shut it off. I know it really made a difference for me back when I shut mine off. ♥

  5. Love the little glove puppets !!! Perfect to play and create stories....
    Have a nice weekend !

  6. Oh, I love Charlie & Lola. They remind me so much of my own two! And I love the cupboard. xxx

  7. Great finds! I bet the grand kids are going to love those puppets, books and all those dress-up clothes. :-D Great find on the furniture too. I like how it has drawers and doors. It'll be fun to see what you do with it.

  8. Great items to find. The Charlie and Lola books are sure to be amusing.

  9. Hey well done on your car-boot buys, love the cupboard, it will be stunning after you work your magic on it, look forward to the reveal.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  10. Can't wait to see what you do with that piece of furniture. Thank you also for the lovely comment son my blog. Did you know that you are a no-reply blogger, so I am unable to reply directly to you. This link tells you how to stop being one:

  11. Oh my goodness!! What absolutely wonderful finds!!! I love the Santa puppet!! I can't wait to see what you do with that cabinet. One man's castaways are truly another woman's treasures!! : ) xo

  12. You certainly hit the jackpot. How fun for you and the grandkids. I will be watching to see what you do with the wooden chest. The term car boot cracks me up.
