Usually it is just myself and my friend Sarah, but recently our troupe has expanded to include my boyfriend Gareth, my brother Andrew and my niece Ruby. The weather has been particularly nice lately too so I took the opportunity to photograph some of the stuff that I would have bought if I had infinite money and space in my house!
I love any kind of vintage kitchenalia so i made a bee line for these trays. The lady told us that her father had made them! They were only £1 each, but sadly I left them where they were, I have way too many trays as it is!
Another thing I have plenty of is mirrors! I really liked this gold framed one, a bargain at £3 and thought it would go perfectly with my starburst clock. However, I was sensible and left it where it was!
This is the rest of the stall, just boxes and boxes of stuff!! Loads of tea sets and kitchenalia to rummage through, just how I like it!
One of my favourite things about carboot sales, even if I don't end up buying anything, is just being really nosey and seeing the random things people have. I loved this Blind Date game! Took me back to Saturday nights in the early 90s!
I could have taken hundreds of pictures over the weeks, but here are just a few more things I spotted then regretfully left behind. A beautiful pheasant tapestry (very similar to one a certain Miss Berger picked up for me at a carboot!), lots and lots of costume jewellery and some very retro kitchen jars:
So that's what we didn't buy, here's a look at some of the things we've picked up today. Records, records and more records! All bought for £1 or less, they included a Beatles Sergeant Peppers, Stone Roses Waterfall Single, Blondie Parallel lines (All Andrews), David Bowies, Frank Sinatras (Sarah) Thin Lizzies (Gareth), Gary Numans (Andrew), and my brothers favourite purchase of the day, Portishead 'Dummy' for 20p! I came away with Petula Clark and the Mary Poppins soundtrack!
