Booty from the Boot

I don't get to many car boots , I do love the local ones that are just for local charity events when you get lots of people just having a clear out and a days fun. This one is my favourite as it is so like a French Vide Grenier, at least as near as we get but without the smell of bbq sausages , bacon sarnies are the order of the day.!
I got a Wareham weave 100% wool waffle, so local history lot,a lovely vintage travel rug.a lace edged tablecloth ,French bowl for my collection which I use daily a nice old crate, and a real find a martingale for my Ticky for her new horse in France and a good contact for further tack which I really wanted.
Great fun we had Janice and I , she found a beautiful miniature Japanese bowl for her collection and I bought her this des res for her bluetits. I have never seen so many different dogs at a boot and all lovely and well behaved too.
Now must start sorting for my day at Honiton tomorrow


  1. Somehow our 'yard sales' don't come close to having the items you are fortunate to pick from!

  2. hello and welcome, when I read Flea Mkt finds magazine I often feel the same !

  3. Dear Linda:
    The sale looks like such fun!! We call them "tailgates" and we used to go to a wonderful sale at a place in New Hampshire at a shop called Bloomin Antiques. Unfortunately, it is all closed up this year and we are having withdrawal symptoms. So, thank you for your posting and letting us go to a car boot vicariously!
