It seems a lot of the sellers at the boot sale today thought £1 would be a good amount when I asked the price of their items. Take a look at some of the fantastic bargains I picked up.
Simply stunning heavy turquoise blue glass goblets. No idea of age, but totally too die for £1 each. My jaw hit the floor and bounced back with the beautiful bone china tureen/serving dish its immaculate and looks as if its never been used. No makers mark and just £1 ! I got it along with the two plates in front and a pretty Royal Albert milk jug (forgot to photograph) all three items for the grand total of £1.70p! As I walked away I heard the chap who sold me the items remark to his Friend “its amazing the crap some people will buy ” !!!
I’ve said before one of the things I miss most about our lifestyle cutbacks has been the lack of flowers. I used to spend about £50 a month on them in our previous life and miss them so much. The last few weeks I have been really lucky to have been given some beautiful ones from a friend’s garden and then to have also picked some up from Sainsbury’s on offer. Imagine my delight when I saw huge bunches of beautiful roses being sold at the boot sale today for the princely sum of £2.50 ! I had to have some and don’t they look gorgeous. Sitting pretty below them are another of my all time favourites, I am always on the lookout for vintage glass Christmas decorations. How pretty are the colours, several have marks and stains but I think it just adds to their beauty. The tray full just £1 and another box full of white glass tree toppers and dangly ones for £2.
How about this pic and me reflected 50 times in all my glory!
I couldn’t believe my luck when I asked the price of this white wicker basket. These days all wicker seems to have silly price tags. This beauty with a cotton liner too for £1 ! Woop! I think the girl realised her mistake as soon as she said it. Too Late, here’s your £1, thank you very much ….
I also found some amazing Table linen, 2 bone china tea sets, an unworn silk blouse, a set of vintage coloured liqueur glasses, a vintage wooden folding measuring tape, a vintage wooden thomas the tank engine puzzle and 2 complete sets of 1950’s serving and dessert spoons. What a bumper morning and total spend was £25 !
