The new season has started…

The car boot sale season that is. I am aware that some of them are opened all year round but the vast majority close their doors around mid October till March/April.

I love car boot sales. I love rummaging through all the stuff laid on tables and on the groud. I love looking for that ‘something’… I love the friendliness of the sellers. I love the relaxed atmosphere all around. I love coming home with lots and lots of things and all for very silly amounts of money. I love the fact that dh hates them so I get to go on my own  guilt free. I love the fact that they open very early in the morning , too early for the girls so I leave them asleep and I get to go on my own 😆

So let me now show you some of yesterday’s bargains. The most expensive items were teenager’s dress and jacket ,£2 each.


Best bargains, 3 terracotta plant pots for £4!!!


Best received bargains…it’s got to be the lip glosses. The two little ones were soooooooooo happy with the make up and all for 20p each. Bargain or what!!! Actually , they were delighted with the cute little cushion which cost me the silly prize of 50p. It’s new and from La Senza…



I also bagged a lovely handbag for moi and a book for moi aussi both for a quid and some other stuff I can’t remember right now.

It is not always that I come home with these many bargains but more often that not I find something to make my early rise, drive there and back worthwhile. I cannot wait till the next Saturday, inshallah. I might even try a new one on Sunday. I did some research  on line recently and apparently there is one in Hatfield on Sunday afternoons. We’ll see …

For now salaams and Hasta pronto,
