Boot sale treasures



A T G Green Domino sugar bowl for 50p (a present from Mum)




A Treasure chest (with 1975 newspaper inside)



A lovely old set of drawers with bakelite handles and little compartments inside



A vintage retro stacking cake tin (to go with my collection)

Some nice bits for my first bootsale of the year. No fabric but then I am drowning in the stuff so I must admit I don't really look for it at the moment. I also got a pretty monsoon floral and polka dot dress for Lizzy for 30p and Alf bought some dinosaurs, space creatures and a Buzz Lightyear spaceship which has the loudest sound effects I have ever heard!!

I have had a great Bank Holiday Week end with lots of sunshine, friends and shopping. Perfect! I will blog more when I get time.

Fab stuff - yes, especially the little chest of draws.

I got another dalek for M. at the boot fair Saturday!! (much smaller version) and some great 50's/60's knitting stuff.

(and books, obviously. I always come back with books!)

Can you feel the pale green light of envy ...dear little domino bowl...adorable chest of drawers...everyone round here thinks they're a blooming antique dealer, so we rarely find bargains.
