They are actually steel toecap work boots, but they will be fine for my dog walking and rambling in the winter. Although I am a size five, and they are a size six, I need the extra width to accommodate my bunions, with an extra pair of socks they fit perfectly. What a bargain.
I also found a nearly new jigsaw puzzle for my friend Sue. One thousand pieces, and the picture is hundreds of cat faces, a bargain for £1. My other finds were a large new plastic cutlery tray for 50p, this will be ideal for all my fiddly crafty bits and pieces, a couple of necklaces for 30p each, I will used the beads for other things. A couple of belts for 10p each, and a cat ornament for Sue for 30p. Oh, I also found two sets of sleepwear, shirt and shorts, for 20p each. They so pretty with cat motiffs on the front.
So all in all, a good morning. You can get everything you need at a car boot sale, if you were moving into a new house for the first time, you could get all your kitchen stuff, pots and pans, cutlery and crockery, curtains and bed covers. If you are having a baby or have a small child, you can get all the stuff you need, bath, clothes, toys and books. You can get decent clothes and shoes for yourself for a pound or two, and it's a great way of recycling.
I don't know why people pay full price at shops anymore. A story in our local paper tells of people signing a petition to stop our Marks and Sparks from closing down. Why are they bothering, let it close I say, we don't need it. Now if they turned it into a big charity shop, that would be great.
