So I love a car boot, you never know what you’re going to find – one persons rubbish is another persons treasure ….. and it’s so true! Now we go to car boots a lot of holidays but have no been to many local to us for some time. But last Sunday me and hubby got up early and off we went to the car boot. I couldn’t believe one how big it was, it’s been years since we’ve been here and two how many people were up and awake a wandering round the car boot so early on a Sunday morning.
I was surprised at how many people were tucking into greasy burgers at 9am, not my idea of a nice breakfast but each to their own!
So what treasures if any did I find???????
This lovely Vintage deck chair cost just £8.00.
Some vintage dress patterns which cost 50p each – I got six ranging from the late 50’s to the 60’s. Vinyl albums which cost a mix of 50p, to a £1, the Jimi Hendrix album (the green one) cost £10.00 which was cheap as it’s an original. The 70’s fruit bowls cost just £2.50 and were in their original box and look like they;e never been used, I couldn’t not buy them at that price and the magazine had some information we might find useful for our vintage 1969 Fiat 500 and cost just 20p.
So we probably spent £40.00 but we got 25 vinyl records (9 albums but one had 11 records inside) 1 magazine, 6 sewing patterns, a fruit bowl set, a deck chair … oh a bath plug to replace mine! Furnace End is probably one of the biggest car boots within the Warwickshire/Birmingham ish area. So if you’re still unsure about car boots – don’t be take a gamble and delve in, they are a lot of fun and you never know what you might find.
Oh and a bonus you end up walking a fair mile!
