Yesterday we had a lovely lie in (9am is totally a lie in isn’t it?) followed by a family breakfast of bacon sandwiches and brown sauce (which is the only sauce that should be eaten with a bacon bun) and then we sat down to have our usual Sunday morning ‘what shall we do today’ chat.
This discussion usually consists of us all sharing an idea on what we want to do and the idea that gets the least argument wins it!
After turning down a walk in the woods, a visit to a castle and a pyjama day (my choice as I’ve not been feeling great recently) we decided to go to the car boot sale. The only problem was that the car boot sale started at 10 and it was already 11! By the time we got dressed and drove the half an hour to the boot sale it was almost 12 which means that most people had been and gone!
I wasn’t expecting to find much but I love a good mooch around the boot sale on a Sunday morning so I was good with that. 😉
Turns out that I was completely wrong because I got some GREAT bargains….
Look at this Next handbag that I bought for £2.00, it’s just perfect as a Winter handbag because it’s so bright and fun….
I also bought Miss Frugal this Antler vanity bag for £1 which is great value considering it’s in really good condition and they’re selling on eBay for around £20….
I aeven managed to buy Master Frugal some juggling balls for 30p and some books for 50p each….
I think the things I bought were probably priced higher earlier on in the boot sale and had I got there as it opened as I usually do then I’d probably not have got the bargains I did. Lots of the stallholders were packing away by the time we got to the end of our walk around so it looks like we got bargains because they wanted to sell as much as they could!
The moral of that story is to have a lie in and a bacon sandwich before you go to the boot sale! 😉
I’m going to link my bargains up with the lovely Becky and Emma who have started a Bargain of the Week linky, I hope I’ll see some of your bargains over there too.
