One of the things I was looking for was a saucepan to replace the grotty one on the left in this picture. The handle has fallen off and I managed to boil it dry and have never been able to get rid of the mess in the bottom. Don't worry, I have never put food directly into it, I have always used it to steam vegetables, with a baskety type thingy in the bottom. This enamel pan was given to me years ago so I haven't done too bad out of it, but it is time to chuck it. Look what I found, a stainless steel pan with lid exactly the right size. It looked a bit stained, but it was only 50p, but with a good scrub it has come up a treat. Now it's like new. If the stall holders made a bit more effort to clean up their stock they could make a bit more money. 50 flippin p eh! I'm well chuffed.
My home made wooden, plastic covered, greenhouse, doesn't have a roof at the moment. Here is my roof. A roll of shrink wrap for £1. Magic!
I like it when women want to get rid of their clothes, some of them haven't a clue what to charge and say the first number that comes into their head. You can tell the ocassional booter as opposed to those who are running a little buying and selling business. I only browse car boot sales about two or three times a year, and every time I come to this one there is a woman I know. One day I said, 'you must have a lot of stuff in your house', she said, I've just had an aunt pass away so I am clearing her house out'. She has been booting for at least ten years to my knowledge. I don't buy from her as she always has antique type stuff that I don't need. A bit further along the line I found these teeshirts two for 50p. Thank you very much, I'll have four.
I love it when I see a basket with an 'Everything 20p sign on it', I'm diving straight in there. This is what I found in the bargain basements. Bits and bobs for crafting and bag making, even the scissors were 20p, and they cut perfectly. I'm pleased I went to the boot sale today.
