Probably last car boot and jumble sale of the year

I'm sad! last jumbley and probably last car boot up here......

Jumbley - some of it quite expensive - I know they are raising funds for a good cause but £4 for a wee tiny brooch is going to put people off. My eldest dd spotted a tiny wee game in a box of skittles in the shape of penguins (table top skittles)Lady wanted £2 for it so she offered £1 - got a mouthful about how it was to raise money for a well somewhere in Africa so my naughty dd told her to send them the penquin game! She got it for £1! Its such a shame but they were left with loads of unsold stuff that if they had asked cheaper prices for it would have gone and they would have more funds - seems daft to me!

Anyhoo - I bought....

Single duvet cover - £1 (this is going to make curtains in my new caravan/office
4 cd set classical music - 50p
DVD about Scott of Antartica - 50p - for my dad
4 items clothing for youngest dd - £2
Hardback book - Prettiest villages in Scotland - £1
3 boots for £1

Todays car boot......

Lovely china tray decorated with cats to keep reading glasses on - £1
Pretty wooden box decorated with tea items - £1.50 -to keep teabags in caravan/office
Chrome wall clock - £1.50 - again for van/office
Large bag of tent pegs (rock ones for awnings) - £2
Small pink chinese style wool rug - £2 - again for van/office

My wee gang hut is coming along nicely = all mismatched stuff and its a great place to study in - will get camera out to show work in progress tomorrow.....


  1. Great buys! I love all the things that you are buying for your office.

  2. Amazing isn't it that they want silly amounts for stuff, well they are daft if you ask me. Glad you found some nice stuff.

  3. Hi there just found your blog..will be reading the archive!! I am in sligo Ireland!

  4. You did well. It is silly the prices though. My favourite church sale doubled their prices this year so I did very well the next day at their bag sale. Lots of stuff was left behind.

  5. Wow, you did very well! Living in London I can't find bargains like that. I love rummaging in boot sales and jumblys - but there's never anything fun around here. Apparently, I need to go to Scotland, STAT. Glad I found you. Love the blog!
