Car Boot Treasure

It was such a lovely morning that we decided to go for a stroll around the boot sale at Stickney.  There was a definite nip in the air and a dampness underfoot, a certain shift in seasons beginning to evolve but a beautiful morning none the less.

I managed to get some fruit/vegetables freshly pulled to top off  what I have harvested to make chutney but didn't take a photo.

A beautiful collection of Guess How Much I love You books complete with bag for £1.

Perfect for my next little visitor who arrives tomorrow.
Some reels of cotton, always great to have for £1, which is a bargain at 20p per reel.
Some beautiful Christmas buttons, I chose £2 worth, perfect timing for all my Christmas projects.
A ladybird button for 10p, just because....
Finally, a chest of drawers for a mere £5.  We intend to renovate it, a project ready for when we have finished all the Christmas presents, fort, farm, stables and castle for our Grandchildren not to mention the wedding.  Maybe after Christmas then????
A good haul for very little money.  Anyone else manage to pick up a bargain?
See you soon.


  1. What brilliant finds, I love a car boot and can spend many an hour just browsing, and you never know what turns up.

    Love, love the collection of little books, and your chest of drawers.


  2. We've been looking for a chest of drawers like that, nothing so far. How lucky to find buttons. They seem to be scarce in my little town so whenever I see them I buy them just in case I need them. A collector of sorts :)

  3. I have never seen those books with the seasons, they are going to be very loved.

  4. Smashing finds .... I do like the buttons!
    I think I Have been to the Stickney car boot sale. My sister knows I love to go to markets so she always takes me to loads when I'm over there. There is one big one in a field that is fabulous many stalls. I can't remember where it is though.

    keep well

  7. I think that you found some great things!!! I love the buttons, especially the ladybug! xx

  8. Such wonderful finds as always!! We have a couple of those "Guess How Much I Love You" books. My kids loved them!! We're in the midst of a weekend long garage sale here at our house. Sold lots of things yesterday and hoping to do the same today. You would go nuts with all of the crafting items I'm selling!!!! : ) Have a beautiful Sunday!!!! xo
