Car Boot Bargains

I just wanted to share with you my finds from the carboot this morning:

Two wooden baskets and a wooden bowl all for £1 !! I'm thinking I can use these to display hearts in on my craft stall....

Three picture frames for £1 !! I'm not sure what I am going to do with these yet but thinking of making some hearts in frames or something so watch this space!

This gorgeous set of five tea cups and saucers were the best find at £1 for the lot!! In one of my homemade vintage books it shows you how to make candles in teacups so I'm going to give this a go, will be interesting to see how they turn out.

So, all these goodies for £3  - I do love carboots!! We went quite late on so the stall holders were just selling off really cheaply. I did notice lots of the stalls though were selling old furniture, frames etc quite expensively as they know people are going to buy them to restore, but its just a case of finding the genuine carbooters rather than the traders. I think we will go late on again next time......


*The book mentioned is 'Homemade gifts vintage style' by Sarah Moore*
