Carboot Finds





Well I struck gold at the Carboot this weekend – first one of the year and I could have spent a fortune. Stall after stall of rummage boxes, my favourite when the items are 50p or 4 for a £1.
There were so many battered vintage suitcases and trunks, I was in heaven! And everything was so cheap! I think I was lucky I took only a set amount with me, otherwise I’d have bought a lot more!!!
Main purchases of the day included a wicker basket for £5, and pair of Mucha art nouvea prints for £5. Lots of random vintage toys from a lady who’s stall was just like an attic, everything from cuddly toys to board games. A vintage hand held mirror for 50p and a kitsch cherry vase also for 50p!
But my favourite find of the day were the vintage wind up toys!!! I’ve never seen ones like this before – never seen a ladybird or frog!! The gentleman on the stall had a table top full of them – and It was really difficult to chose!
