Bootsale bargains

I went to a car boot sale on Sunday morning! The first one that I have been to since I moved here 8 years ago. My friend was selling some bits so I decided to go for some moral support and to help entertain the kids (both hers and mine!!).

It was a really hot sunny day and I came away with some sunburn but also some bargains!! Firstly I came across this letter rack that cost the pricely sum of 50p. It now has pride of place on the hall table in an attempt to try and keep some order admidst the chaos!!

We have just thrown our coffee maker out as it was refusing to percolate and we had just decided to buy a new one for about £30. Guess what I bought at the boot sale???

Here it is in use!! It was being sold by a couple who were selling many new and lovely items all in perfect condition, hubby also had a brand new with tags Gap shirt from them for £1.50. I paid £4 for this pristine machine though without instructions but look what I managed to make................

a cappuccino!!!


  1. Clever you!!! I've got a friend who has one of those posh machines and her cappaccino's are gorgeous. So will you be frequenting the boot sale again, I think I know the answer to that one ;-)

  2. Wow!I love reading about peoples bootsale finds!
