I’ve got lots to smile about this thrifty Sunday – it’s officially car boot season, and that means early rises, bacon sandwiches and bargains galore! Take a look what I scooped over the weekend…
Bone china St Michaels bowl, 50p
Silver (possibly sterling… need to check!) dressing table brush with rose printed back, 50p
Cath Kidston wash bag, 20p
Noa Noa crochet cardigan, £2
Well, the Zara mac was a little more than I wanted to spend, and I already have a cream mac in my wardrobe, but it’s so beautifully made and fits like a dream… I couldn’t leave it behind! And I couldn’t believe my ears when the curly haired blonde behind one stall said ‘you can have that for 20p if you like’ as I pawed the Cath Kidston wash bag. It’s perfect for lugging my favourite ‘essentials’ (read – 5 different nail varnishes and copious amounts of blusher) across the world… or at least across Yorkshire.
The brush and bowl are welcome additions to my already-groaning dressing table. I’m in total and utter love with the brush. I think it’s sterling silver but even if not, it’s perfectly pretty. And the dresses will fit right in to my collection – the New Look swallow print dress looks rather similar to one of their current designs so I think it’s new season. The Charlotte Halton is a beautifully flattering shape but will need hemming… they’re both hanging on my makeshift washing line to air.
So that’s me done for the week – it was definitely worth seeing 7am on a Sunday! Are you a fellow booter? Did you find yourself standing in a field at some ungodly hour over the weekend? And if so, what did you find? I’d love to know!
