I've been meaning to do some carbooting for a while, especially ever since I've started reading lots of your lovely blogs! All your fantastic finds are so inspiring.
Anyway, once the rain had stopped this morning, my friend and I headed off. The sale we went to is on every Sunday (from midday onwards - gotta love a non-early start!), and we actually sold there once last year. I wasn't really sure what to expect, as it seemed really mixed the last time we went, but I was pleasantly surprised, and picked up some lovely things. I did, however, leave behind a stunning black and gold vintage typewriter (the person manning the store was aware that it was worth around the £70 mark - shame!) and a set of Keypers that I wanted desperately when I was 7. I was also wondering if I would run into a fellow blogger on my travels - unfortunately we just missed each other!
At the very first stall, I found this...
I have a bit of a thing for vintage suitcases, and this cost just one shiny pound. And the lady I bought it from told me it's from the 1950s. So cool.
I then, in quick succession, purchased these two vintage cameras.
The Nikkorex was £5 (steep for a carbootie, but I fell in love with it), and the Kodak Brownie was a bargainous £1.50. I can't wait to try them out... if they actually work, that is!
I left this sewing box when I first saw it, then came back to it about ten minutes later to find out the price. £2!! I can keep so much stuff in it. If there's one thing I have a lot of, it's BITS.
This stack of over fifty Puddle Lane books cost me a fiver. I am currently my niece's favourite person as she wades through them. I debated this purchase, but I couldn't leave them - they were my favourite books as a child, and we'll keep them forever.
I wish Penguin would repackage all their books in this style. These were 25p each (I don't think the stall owner realised how cultish the covers have become). I actually really like that they're battered.
...always going to come in useful. 10p.
God, I love carbooting. All that, and change from a twenty pound note. AMAZING. I sense the start of an exciting new addiction.
